HCC - Torben Severinsen

Welcome to Funen

On behalf of all Y’s Men’s clubs in District Funen, you and your club mates are hereby invited to participate in an adventurous International World Convention as well as a Regional Conference on Thursday 13th - 16th August 2020. 

In the summer of 2017, the World Convention 2020 was awarded to Region Denmark, and District Funen has since collaborated to make both an International Convention and a Danish Regional Conference an adventurous experience ”for life”.

The conventions are to be held in Hans Christian Andersen’s birthplace Odense and have naturally given the Host Committee an approach using Hans Christian Andersen’s Fairy Tales as an inspiration for the Theme. Next, we have chosen to hold the conventions at the same time as Odense Flower Festival, where delegates and companions will experience Odense city center filled with beautiful flower decorations.

You will experience an adventurous conference city and will live in the middle of Odense where the world-famous fairy tale poet ran around as a child in clogs.
We have gathered most activities under one roof, and you will experience Denmark’s newest and most modern conference center, Odeon. 

The participants in International Youth Convocation will stay ”just around the corner” in the building at Odense Railway Station. And they will hold their convocation in Odense City.

We have put a lot of work into the planning so our guests will experience the best hospitality that we and Odense can offer. We will hear inspiring lectures, be moved, be impressed and encouraged by music, dance and performances in the evening. And the highlight is, of course, the big party night.

There will be many opportunities for the companions to experience Odense as a good and attractive tourist town. You can experience Danish culture, go on an adventure walk or go shopping in Denmark’s largest shopping mall. And if you are interested in festivals you can attend H.C. Andersen Festivals in the week after the Convocation. It is one of Denmark’s biggest festivals.

So welcome to all delegates and their companions to ”The City of Fairy Tales”. 

We look forward to seeing you all.

Torben Severinsen, HCC 2020
