Exploring Danish Wellbeing
The following is an example of a one day inspiration tour in Aarhus, Denmark. We led a group of 25 people who work with libraries on an exploration of Danish wellbeing. For many years, Denmark has been identified as one of the happiest countries in the world. This is due in part to their unique philosophies about wellbeing. We wanted to experience a few of the cultural qualities that lead to a sense of Danish wellbeing and togetherness. The fundamental purpose of the tour was oriented toward opening new lines of inquiry rather than having answers. We were driven by this question: How might we create a greater sense of wellbeing in our libraries?
