The NORDEN Association

The NORDEN Association is a non-profit, non-governmental organization working to promote a more effective coorporation among all Nordic countries. We work to enhance Nordic coorporation at all levels – among the Nordic people as well as the Nordic states and governments. We work across all political party lines.

The organization is part of a Nordic movement – including associations in Sweden, Norway, Finland, The Faroe Islands, Iceland, Greenland and the Åland Islands.

The NORDEN Association (Foreningen NORDEN) was founded in 1919 and has been focusing on Scandinavian and Nordic cooperation since the beginning. Our goal is to make it easier for Nordic citizens to live, work and travel in all Nordic countries.

We handle students’ and teachers’ exchange programs in all the Nordic countries.

Two other important tasks for The NORDEN Association are to inform about and draw attention to Nordic issues. We sell books, publish a magazine (Norden NU) on all Nordic issues, offer various kinds of information on many aspects of the Nordic societies. We also lobby on political decisions in Denmark and in the other Nordic countries.

The NORDEN Association also initiates local Nordic activities. In Denmark, we have local branches across the country. These local branches offer a great variety of activities; from photo exhibits and lectures to inexpensive guided tours throughout hte Nordic countries, all with one purpose: To bring the Nordic people together.

The NORDEN Association is a people’s organization whereas the Nordic Council represents the members of the Nordic parlaments and the Nordic Council of Ministers represents the governments.
