Weekly overview 


The Social Democrats are embracing royalism after they decided to end a 100-year old tradition of refusing royal orders and medals. Moving forward, it will be up to each party member to decide whether to accept or not. 

The Culture Ministry sent an official application to UNESCO to include Møns Klint on the World Heritage List. One reason is its importance to research, as it provides insights into the last ice age. 

The government started a dialogue with India and the Philippines regarding education and recruitment of healthcare staff (nurses and social/health assistants). One potential model is to establish Danish health schools in these countries.

The government will soon announce the elderly reform. Already, some measures have been presented, like giving a salary to social/health assistants (SOSU) during education (if they are over 25 years old) to attract more people, and reducing the time SOSU spends on supervision so they can focus on core tasks.
