The Trainers Team

We are a team of democracy fitness trainers! We spread the idea that our democracy muscles have to be exercised to become strong. Just like the muscles in our body!


I am absorbed in how to design concepts and processes that invite people to act and engage in everyday democracy and participate in a more open public sector. I am educated as an social anthropologist and I have worked with insight-based organisational change and sense-making through design thinking for many years. I am currently working as a senior consultant at RESONANS designing and facilitating organisational change, public co-creation and change in work of policy.





I am an "everyday activist". I believe that even little actions in everyday life can move people. With a background in journalism I'm both very curious, straight-forward and concrete in my approach. I have made tv-programmes on many subjects e.g. the danish alcohol culture, football and science. Now I am developing and managing a local citizen-house in Roskilde, Denmark called “Byens hus”.

I work as a partner in the Danish-based organisation WE DO DEMOCRACY that works in the field of democracy innovation. We work as entrepreneurs, advisors and activists to secure that more people have a say in shaping their own lifes and the society they are a part of.. I have +20 years of experience in the management consulting industry. I am also the initiator of the Democracy Festival Association and the chair of the Danish association Demokratiscenen.


We train other trainers, so we make sure that the democracy fitness concept spreads even faster

Democracy Fitness - Train the Trainer Camp


At the training camp you become a Democracy Fitness trainer and learn how to execute the exercises that are already designed. You will also learn to identify democracy muscles relevant in your country and context and to design an engaging 30 minutes exercise yourself to strengthen that particular democracy muscle. You will be able to go back home and immediately start building a better democracy muscle by muscle-
person by person – . The Camps are for everyone working with democracy, participation, active citizenship and community building.
