On “The Diplomat” this week, we meet Ambassador of Denmark to S. Korea, Einar H. JENSEN. Denmark is familiar to us as the home of Hans Christian Andersen, famous for his fairy tales. The country boasts a clean natural environment which provides artistic inspiration and fits the Danish lifestyle of “hygge” which means a comfortable and cozy state. Denmark’s eco-friendly lifestyle has allowed it to become a leader in green growth amid today’s climate change crisis. Korea and Denmark are strengthening cooperation to resolve climate problems through wind energy development. The two countries began technology sharing for renewable energy development while Denmark’s climate ambassador, Tomas Anker Christiansen, visited Korea in February to discuss ways to cooperate ahead of Korea’s hosting of the P4G summit in June. We’ll hear about Denmark’s green growth policy and bilateral efforts for it from Ambassador Jenson.
