Welcome to the Concord Events blog!
This is our very first blog post and we want to tell you a little bit about why we started this project and why we are so happy you are reading about it.
The team behind Concord Events
The team members of Concord Events are from different countries. We have different professional backgrounds and our own (delightful) personalities. The magnet that brought us all together is the values we want to transmit to the future generations.
Most of us have kids of our own and we see the impact the world in this digital age has on them from a very young age. We live in a world of play-dates and sports competitions, and extreme advertisement targeting the very impressionable minds of our children. Have you seen the publicity on the kids channels before Christmas? They are being showered with ads for toys.
Before I continue, I want to say that we are not opposed to kids being exposed to technology and healthy competition could be very beneficial for them. What we are advocating for is a bit more play outdoors, healthy activities and with children that they don’t necessarily know.
That is why at Concord Events we build events that communicate the values that we want to transmit to future generations such as harmony and friendship, education and a healthy lifestyle, togetherness and fun. We firmly believe that these values can make the world a better place because they are the foundation of well-being.
It’s not just the overexposure to technology that we want to avoid. We also want children to see past their differences and learn that they have a lot in common no matter what their background, heritage, mother language and other so called “differences” are.
What we do
This blog will present you with a variety of ideas for healthy activities you can do at home with your kids. Also, we will post relevant events happening in the Copenhagen area. Other posts will be about upcoming events organized by Concord Events and our partners.
