Eden Denmark, Day 2

After a hearty breakfast–which seemed to come very soon after the wonderful dinner the night before–we were launched into Day 2 with the Danish Eden song, sung in Danish, English and German (close approximations accepted).

After a local journalist spoke about intergenerational relationships, June spoke about the process of Eden registry and validation in the UK.

We were then treated to a group of high school students, who shared poems and songs they had written about their perspectives on aging and elderhood:

Another highlight of Day 2 was the induction of the Birkelund home into the Danish Eden registry, with elders and families in attendance:

I said goodbye with my own Eden song (co-written with my friend Anne Hills), before heading off to Odense to see the Hans Christian Andersen birthplace and museum.

More on Birkelund in my next post!
