Discussion about Copenhagen assassinations

Last week during our weekly house meeting, 47 users of Trampoline House from around the globe discussed the tragic assassinations in Copenhagen peacefully and analytically. After the meeting, volunteer Tali Padan wrote on Facebook: “Thanks for a nice discussion today. It’s really nice to be in the company of so many people with such big hearts, so much compassion and understanding. Our Trampoline community is the world I want to live in! No borders.”

We will continue the discussion during this week’s house meeting. The meeting is on Tuesday from 4:15–5:30 pm. Join us – it’s also your house!

Short week

This is a short week. We are open Tuesday and Wednesday only. Click here to see the program this week.
We are closed Friday (because we always close the last Friday of the month) and we are closed Saturday (because we always close if there is a fifth Saturday in a month).

But as a new service to people who have just received asylum or another type of residence permit in Denmark, we now offer counseling for new residents every Tuesday from 4–7 pm and every Friday from 4–6 pm. So come talk to our advisors if you need help applying for family reunification, getting a bank account, paying taxes, making a CV, writing a job application, or applying for an education program…

And this Friday, the Kangaroo Youth Club has the house to itself from 4–7 pm and invites young people between 12-19 years to join our fun activities!
