THANKS TO FAMILY, THE TEAM AND SUPPORT!
Here & Away is a company that aims to combine charity here, with information and education about what is supported away. We believe that it is important to combine the two and that it is not enough, ‘just’ to pay for a clear conscience. We believe that it is important to know about the world we live in and to be aware of why there is hunger, poverty and conflicts. It is important and good to support the people affected, but often money is not enough.
Money cannot prevent conflict and poverty. Money can help and money can save lives – you can contribute to save lives by paying. More importantly, we all have to work actively to change the structures that lead to poverty, oppression and conflict. We all have a responsibility to act and to pressure decision-makers – here and away.
Here & Away is a company rooted in our hope to make the state of things a little better. It is a company started to do better, increase curiosity, create change and learn – all at the same time.
We emphasize close relations in everything we do. Here & Away has grown out of a valuable and loving relationship between two friends connected on many levels, but especially in our strong will and faith in changing the way we think about development and charity.
A new and unique drawing book collects 84 of the best contemporary artists in Northern Europe. Each artist has contributed with a drawing outline for children and people who are young at heart, encouraging them to engage with the drawing. And its totally legitimate to color outside the lines!
With Contributions from Olafur Eliasson, Jeppe Hein, Magnus Wallin, Camilla Løw, Fredrik Raddum and Michael Kvium The Big Nordic Color Book becomes a true wonderland for anyone who wishes to play and learn from the best contemporary Nordic artists.
The works all encompass different expressions revealing the versatility among the artists by being funny, mind-blowing, odd and curious. Each drawing awaits your pen and desire to join the fun and fantasy.
The book was published in cooperation with Red Cross in the 3 Nordic countries. Every year a fixed sum from the sales of each book goes to the organizations daily relief work and during disasters.
The idea generator behind the project, Lærke Hein, published “Color Book 1- Continue Drawing with 66 Danish Artists”, in 2010. The book has been covered in paint by many Danes in all ages and has raised over 300.000 Danish Crowns for Danish Red Cross.

A win win situation is what you might call this publication. It is a color book, which contains hours of fun for both children and grown-ups. Just like good children books and movies this color book reveals many aspects and layers, which embraces and provides entertainment for all ages. At the same time the book has another purpose and that is to help others in need. Each time a book is sold, money is sent to the Danish Red Cross- Katastrofefonden.
Out of an amazing group of significant artists each individual brings orignalty to the table, like Papafar (Søren Benche) with his version of “The Three Little Pigs” and Kathrine Ærtebjerg who invites us to a divine universe with her characteristic lines. And from the world of music Stig Pedersen from “D.A.D” lets the drawing bring us round the world while Nikolaj Rasted from “Hej Matmetik” reveals a city built by speakers. TV personalities Signe Lindkvist and Jan Elhøj have also emerged themselves into the creative universe and contribute with their unique drawings.

Running is a means of terrestrial locomotion allowing humans and other animals to move rapidly on foot. Having the right to move means that you have the choice, possibility and right to move from A to B and to make the decision on where you want to be when and why and how. The right to movement is a basic human right as stipulated in Article 13 of the UN Human Rights Charter:
Everyone has the right to freedom of movement
We get up in the morning, and we go for a run – short or long. Or we get up and go to work, or to school, or to visit family or run errands. We plan and we go, we move. Or we just move without planning. We go by foot, by bike, by car. We go as we choose, when we choose and where we choose. Everyone has the right to freedom of movement, but not everyone has the option.
Restriction on movement is one of the major challenges for the Palestinian people living under occupation. They cannot travel freely on roads and not go from one city to another. Where they can go depends on their ID, whether they have a permit or which city they belong in or who they are married to. They do not have a state, and their lands are controlled by a foreign army – that army controls their movement with roadblocks, checkpoints, military zones, an illegal wall and a complex set of discriminatory laws. The EU and the US talks about a two-state solution, an independent Palestine – but we cannot find the 42 KMs needed for a marathon. Not only 42 KMs of an area, which are supposed to be an independent state are controlled by the Palestinian themselves. This is why we do it.
We also do it to show that the Palestinians not only are capable of having a marathon, but is capable of statehood and self-determination. That they are people who love their land and have a lot to offer – to you and to each other. We want to show more people, and runners, Palestine and the Palestinians. We want to contribute to tell a different story than the one of conflict and hate. We want to move. Move things.
Move with us.
Asylum United is the first refugee soccer league in the world. Our ambition is to create a soccer league where women from asylum centers play matches, build communities and friendships. After 6 months training its looks like it’s finally happening and within the next year we can start a conversation with the women about their ambition regarding the sport. Our goal is that Asylum United becomes an active part of the Danish sport unions so the woman can create relations and develop their network, and at the same time the Danish unions can develop a deeper cultural understanding.
We imagine that all this will all lead to a league under the DBU, where all refugee centers can enroll their teams with different premises based on age, for example a minimum age of 30. Apart from that we also want to build a bridge between the unions and the asylum centers so that women who don’t have access to a team at their own center can join one that belongs to DBU.
The project is about making an important difference for many women and children in the Danish refugee centers. Physical activity can be a catalyst for female self-confidence and if Danish residence is approved it also helps getting integrated into the Danish society. It’s an effort to help promote integration through women’s soccer so that they can believe in, and act on a better future. Through respect and understanding for the situation they are in we want to give them tools so they can take courage and pride in contributing to the community. We experience that a woman with a soccer ball under her arm feels more powerful and energetic which affects the people around and her view on the Danish society. Women in refugee centers are especially in need of empowerment to cope with the drastically different society they have involuntarily become a part of. It also gives them a better chance of coping with the refusal of Danish residence.
Furthermore our vision is to spread the message about being able to volunteer and making a difference from where you are. We want to create change that can spread like rings in the water and have an effect outside of the Danish borders. Soccer is the words largest sport and therefore creates a setting, which can be fun and insightful for everybody participating- no matter the starting point.
We have been working hard to create a platform where the women feel at ease and have faith in the project. That’s why we come back week after week and practice no matter what.
The debate over equal rights in sports may be heating up again. With female athletes two to eight times more likely to suffer a sports injury, coaches around the world have criticized the focus in youth sports on performance rather than injury prevention and game development.
Sensational Football, a progressive company now going worldwide with Sensational 1, a new women’s soccer ball. At 12 ounces and 26 inches circumference (360 grams, 67 cm) the ball is lighter than the traditional size 5 ball currently used in football (a ball developed to men). Sensational 1 is calculated by scientists to make sure we ended up with the most suitable and perfect ball for wom-en. It is supported by the Danish Football Association. It is currently being used in games in Denmark, Germany and Sweden.
Just as important as cutting down injuries is the ability to create a faster and more fun game for the players and the audience. More goals from the distance, more skills performed on the field, could turn women’s football into a TV darling. According to research conducted by Silke Sinning, a leading professor from the Institute for Sports Sciences at the University of Koblenz-Landau in Germany, 66% of the test players thought the Sensational 1 ball performed better than the Adidas Jabulani, the official match ball of the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ in South Africa (a ball equivalent to the women’s Speedcell ball, used at the 2011 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Germany).
The Sensational 1 ball has been tested for performance since 2008. We know we are up against some huge players.. But since they seem not to care so much about the girls – we will embrace the battle and trust that women of today dare to say "we want to be treated special, we want the best equipment to develop our skills, we want to have fun without the fear of injuries – like you would ever give Messi a ball 7 without people around him going through the roof.
Sensational Street Soccer was nominated/honored Best Grassroots Project by UEFA.
For the last eight years, we have done street and music festival football/soccer tournaments.
Thousands of women have played over the years. We have worked closely together with companies like Cover, Metroxpress, ELLE, Hummel, Roskilde Music Festival, Cola Light, and Ga-jol. We want to reach the urban woman, who will go play even if she has never touched a ball before.
