"We get a breakdown of Denmark, where the winners are the big cities with their educa-tion, good job opportunities and attractive culture. The losers can look forward to closures of schools and other welfare institutions. There are more holes in the roads, and a longer time before they are repaired“.

Lea Louise Holst Laursen, Associate Professor at the Department of Architecture, Design and Media Technology at Aalborg University

"Culture is the modern industrial policy (..). The transformation from industrial to knowledge society is

on-going. One of the prerequisites to attract skilled labor is well-functioning cultural and recreational opportunities“.

Development Manager Rune Larsson, Hjørring Municipality
