Clever Monday

The municipality of Copenhagen provides our organization with a venue every Monday from 5 pm to 7 pm in the World’s Center for Culture (Verdens Kultur Centret) free of charge. Therefore Mondays are our primary occasion for meeting altogether with the purpose of discussing various current topics, often in smaller groups.

This weekly meeting is often referred to as “Clever Monday, your guide to integration”. These meetings are open to all, regardless of whether you are male or female, member or non-member. There is no official subscription needed in order to attend the meetings, however events on social media like Facebook will often be created and we urge you to register on there, so that we have an idea of how many participants will be attending.
