The idea behind Folkemødet
Folkemødet is a meeting between people and politicians, where Bornholm provides the venue for Danish politicians to debate current political issues.
All events are free and within walking distance of each other.
Each political party represented in Folketinget has the opportunity to hold a major speech.
Folkemødet was established on initiative of Mayor Winni Grosbøll and is inspired by Almedal Week (www.almedalsveckan.se) in the town of Visby, Gotland in Sweden.
