Surveys are clear: Denmark is the happiest country in the world. What, in their culture, in their education, their characters make them so capable of well-being? Malene Rydahl investigated and thought about this enigma. In the course of these ten commandments : I don’t fear others (confidence), I have a place in society (education), I am free of choosing my path (freedom, personal autonomy), I can become who I want to be ( gender equality), I feel better if you feel good ( solidarity and respect)”
