Frederiksberg City Hall was the scene for Africa Day
Frederiksberg City Hall was the scene for Africa Day on September 20, a chance for the continent’s embassies to come together to remind the world what it has to offer, from tourism and tastings to crafts and culture. We will resist the temptation to say they were drumming up interest!
Among the most prominent guests were (left-right) Ghanaian ambassador Edith Hazel, Egyptian ambassador Salwa Moufid, Moroccan ambassador Raja Ghannam, Frederiksberg mayor Jørgen Glenthøj and Ivory Coast ambassador Mina Balde Laurent.
But overall, the event attracted a wide range of nationalities and ages. After all, aren’t events like these primarily aimed at future generations?
