You are Global Storytellers

Global Storytellers is an international joint project for all folk high schools students in Denmark. First and foremost it's about learning more about the world and telling stories addressing both mind and heart.

When you go on study trips around the world, or when international students come to Denmark, you will all have the opportunity to look at the world through a magnifying glass and pursue the most important questions of our time.
This online magazine is where your stories come to life.
