Countdown to Copenhagen!

We are delighted to announce that the seventh annual Copenhagen Democracy Summit will take place on May 14-15th at the Royal Danish Playhouse.

Following Russia's brutal invasion of Ukraine, we have seen a strong and unified response from the democratic world. Still, more needs to be done to ensure freedom and democracy prevail. Around the world, democratic forces need to work closer together to counter increasingly aggressive autocratic regimes. This was our Founder and Chairman, Anders Fogh Rasmussen's ambition when inaugurating the Copenhagen Democracy Summit seven years ago.

This years summit will delve into the intricate dynamics between technology, democracy, and freedom with the unwavering advocates dedicated to preserving these fundamental principles. The summit isn't just a gathering; it's a bold assertion to collectively #DefendDemocracy - join us in our mission!

The Summit is scheduled to begin with registration at 09:00 CET on Tuesday, May 14th and will close with dinner at 20:00 CET. On Wednesday, May 15th, the Summit will kick off at 09:00 CET and conclude with a networking lunch at 14:00 CET.
