Denmark – A State of Happiness


SKU: 2716718 Category:


"YES Cowal" present a film is now called Denmark – the State of Happiness – by Charlie Stuart and Lesley Riddoch.

They are the happiest people on earth, with the most energy sustainable country and bike use higher than the Netherlands, a swim no further than 15 mins from each Copenhagen resident and state-run TV that changed the face of drama with Borgen, the Killing and the Bridge. Yet Denmark is small (the same population and a fraction of Scotland's land mass) with very little oil/coal/gas to fuel their economy and an empire lost – just like Britain. Still, the Danes bounced back to become the modern, eco-leaders of Europe, while Westminster has collapsed into Little Englanderism. How did they do it? 


Denmark – the State of Happiness has an estimated run time of 60 minutes followed by a Q&A with Lesley Riddoch, who'd like to thank the Scottish Independence Foundation and another generous co-funder for backing the film.
