What is Minority Changemaker Programme?

The project Minority Changemaker Programme is an initiative of the Danish border Association (Grænseforeningen), which also sponsors the project with 270.000 Euro. Jaruplund Højskole situated in a green area in the outskirts of Flensburg, Germany, offers education and accommodation to the European students that will be part of this special Nordic concept for adult education that generally does not grant academic degrees.
