The Denmark Consensus 2009 started on December 6, 2008 when the Danish people were given an opportunity to express their opinion on the biggest challenges facing Denmark on Politiken's web page (closed December 10th).
Together with the Danish newspaper, Politiken and the Danish opinion-research institute Megafon, we asked 1,100 Danes to identify the biggest problems facing the Danish society over the next five years.
The five biggest challenges identified were:
- The Danish Economy (The Financial Crisis)
- The Health Sector and the Hospital Service
- Integration and Immigration
- Climate and Pollution
- Infrastructure and Public Transport
