An association for all regardless of faith, culture, language and disability


In the committee of Day of Associations (Foreningernes Dag) we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel Day of Associations in 2020. The decision has been made in agreement with Næstved Municipality’s Center for Culture and Citizenship, which is the administration we work with.

Obviously, there is a great deal of uncertainty associated with planning events in the fall of 2020, as we do not know the set of rules that will apply in early September. Furthermore, many associations have expressed concerns about having to be part of an event that brings together many citizens in a relatively small space – a space that has also been reduced by the test center in Rådmandshaven.

Besides that, we see great challenges in gathering the audience that we are so dependent on to call Day of Associations a success. If larger gatherings will be allowed this fall, we as Day of Associations will experience a great deal of competition from all the other public and private events that have been postponed since Spring. It will simply be too difficult to get people to visit us that day.

From the Day of Associations committee and Næstved’s Center for Culture and Citizenship we thank you very much for the support and interest you have shown Day of Associations, and we promise to be back with a bang of a Day of Associations in 2021. See you there!
