Complexity Navigation in Denmark

Humantific in Denmark:

We had a great week in Copenhagen and Aarhus working with the faculty of the Danish School of Media & Journalism and in the middle giving a public talk.

Lots of interest in Complexity Navigation as a set of future work skills. Thanks to Trine Nielsen for inviting and hosting us.
