The theoretical knowledge gained from the presentations and talks was accompanied by a practical experience of shadowing local candidates and accompanying electoral campaigns during the days of the local elections. The participants got the opportunity to meet with active actors at the Danish civil society such as student unions, red cross, Duff and the Folk High Schools.
