Transition in Denmark
Main page: Transition in Denmark
The Transition Network lists 5 initiatives in Denmark.
The foundation for the Transition Movement in Denmark was laid in 2006 by a group of climate-conscious people, which led to the foundation of Omstilling Danmark (Transition Denmark). The purpose of the association operating as the national hub is to inspire new local initiatives and offer a platform for connection and exchange.
The Omstilling Nu (Transition Now), founded by young people in 2013, is a growing network and “project platform where people can develop their own projects working for the transition of society to a sustainable future”.

The Global Ecovillage Network (GEN) lists 10 projects in their database. This number is however only reflecting the projects that have registered themselves on the database. The ecovillage database contains ecovillage projects of all sizes and in all stages of development.
The ecovillages in Denmark are organized in the Landsforeningen for Okosamfund (LØS). LØS was founded 25 years ago, lists 33 ecovillage projects and 19 companies engaged with ecosystems as members coming together in its annual general meeting and working groups. The biannually published magazine “Økosamfund i Danmark” has reached its 82th edition in October 2017 and all relevant documents are transparently arranged and publicly available on google drive. .
LØS is working with an elected board and interest-based committees reporting to the board with all strategically working towards the “transformation of Denmark which is about creating many more new ecosystems both in rural areas and cities, strengthening sustainable business development and launching massive education in sustainability and conversion - from primary school to high school.” .
LØS is part of the Baltic Ecovillage Network (BEN), an association connecting projects around the Baltic Sea which is operated by a board of 11 board members from its different membership countries.
LØS is also a full member of GEN-Europe, the European branch of the Global Ecovillage Network.
