IN ENGLISH LANGUAGE  |  Statements and quotes:

“‘India Today – Copenhagen Tomorrow’ will be a very, very important step towards achieving the objective of building a business and cultural relationship between Denmark and India – people to people, country to country, and to exploit its fullest potential, what both nations want. This will be an important milestone towards achieving that.”

- Mr. A. M. Naik, Executive Chairman of Larsen & Toubro Limited

(Excerpt from video interview with Danish Cultural Institute in May 2012)

“Denmark and India can learn a lot from each other and both nations will benefit from a Danish-Indian collaboration. If we work together and share our intellectual ressources, we can profit from each others knowledge and achieve even better results.”

- Dr. Pachauri, General Secretary, The Energy and Resources Institute, and President of UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. 
(Excerpt from interview with Danish Cultural Institute in May 2012)

 

“Co-create Now aims to create contacts and inspiration between Denmark and India which will occur between individuals and on a personal level. Co-Create Now will focus on stories and experiences that people have a real interest in sharing.”

- Michael Christiansen, Chairman of the board, the Danish Cultural Institute

“The purpose is to create a new awareness among the population in our countries in a way that causes many people in both countries to gain new knowledge about each other’s culture and way of life. This is necessary for creating trustworthy and sustainable connections. ‘India Today – Copenhagen Tomorrow’ has established excellent potentials for a collaboration between Denmark and India in areas such as culture and sustainability.”

- Finn Andersen, General Secretary, the Danish Cultural Institute

“Denmark is working hard at creating a more sustainable future and considers it to be an export possibility as local politicians in India are preparing to make their local area the world’s first 100 percent sustainable city. Co-creation is the key concept which we will explore through the possibilities that the social platforms on the internet provide.”

- Olaf Gerlach-Hansen, Project Manager, the Danish Cultural Institute

“The initiative is part of the project ‘India Today Copenhagen Tomorrow’. Because of this project, a large number of Indians will be visiting Denmark in 2012, and our idea is to involve them in a flow of communication about Denmark to people in India and vice-versa. The online platform ‘Co-Create Now’ is to create the kind of contacts and collaborations between Denmark and India which take place between individuals on a personal level. We focus on stories and experiences that people have a genuine interest in sharing with each other.”- Mik Aidt, Web Editor of Co-create Now, the Danish Cultural Institute

 





In Danish language

“‘India Today – Copenhagen Tomorrow’ er et vigtigt initiativ og et stort skridt mod at skabe et dansk-indisk forretningsmæssigt og kulturelt samarbejde. Projektet er en milepæl, som giver begge nationer mulighed for at få indsigt i hinandens kultur og dermed opnå det bedst mulige udbytte af et samarbejde.”
- Mr. A. M. Naik, CEO og administrerende direktør, Larsen & Toubro
(Udtalt i interview med Det Danske Kulturinstitut i maj 2012.)

“Danmark og Indien kan lære meget af hinanden og et dansk-indisk samarbejde vil gavne begge nationer. Hvis vi samarbejder og slår vores intellektuelle ressourcer sammen, vil vi kunne nyde fordel af hinandens viden og dermed opnå endnu bedre resultater.”
- Dr. Pachauri, generalsekretær for The Energy and Resources Institute, formand for FN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
(Udtalt i interview med DKI i maj 2012)

“Co-Create Now’ vil skabe kontakter og inspiration mellem Danmark og Indien, som finder sted mellem enkeltpersoner og på et personligt plan. Co-Create Now fokuserer på historier og oplevelser, som folk har en reel interesse i at dele med hinanden.”
- Michael Christiansen, bestyrelsesformand, Det Danske Kulturinstitut

“Målet er at skabe ny viden mellem befolkningerne i vores lande, sådan at mange mennesker i begge lande får ny viden om hinandens kultur og måde at leve på – at opbygge troværdige og bæredygtige forbindelser. Med ‘India Today Copenhagen Tomorrow’ er der skabt nogle fantastiske potentialer for at udvikle samarbejdet mellem Danmark og Indien – eksempelvis på områder som kultur og bæredygtighed.”
- Finn Andersen, generalsekretær, Det Danske Kulturinstitut

“Danmark er i fuld gang med at ruste sig til en mere bæredygtige fremtid og ser det også som en eksportmulighed, mens der for eksempel findes lokalpolitikere i Indien, som i øjeblikket forbereder sig på at gøre deres byområde til verdens første 100 procent bæredygtige by. Co-creation er et nøglebegreb, som vi vil udforske i forhold til de muligheder, som internettets sociale platforme giver.”
- Olaf Gerlach Hansen, projektleder, Det Danske Kulturinstitut

“I forbindelse med ‘India Today Copenhagen Tomorrow’ kommer en lang række indere på besøg i Danmark, og dem ønsker vi at inddrage i kommunikationen om Danmark til Indien. Ideen med Co-create Now er at skabe kontakter, samarbejder og interessefællesskaber mellem Danmark og Indien, som foregår mellem individer på et personligt plan. Vi vil gøre det ved at fokusere på fortællinger og holdninger, som folk har en reel interesse i at dele med hinanden.”
- Mik Aidt, webredaktør, Co-create Now, Det Danske Kulturinstitut
