Copenhagen Goodwill Ambassador’s Conference

Diaspora Event -Kingsley Aikins spoke recently at the Copenhagen Goodwill Ambassadors’ Conference in the Danish capital. The photo shows him with Lars Himmer, CEO of Volkswagen Ireland and one of Copenhagen’s Goodwill Ambassadors. The Conference saw the launch of a survey of Danes living abroad entitled “The Danish Diaspora – An Untapped Resource”. The report particularly highlighted the Irish Diaspora Engagement Model and made the recommendation that Denmark should set up a Ministry of the Diaspora according to the Irish model. This is an interesting example of what countries can learn from each other and also the growing power and significance of ‘city’ Diasporas.
