The Danish National Association of Public
Housing Cooperations meets The Human Library

EVALUATION REPORT

THE DANISH NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF PUBLIC HOUSING COOPERATIONS
MEETS THE HUMAN LIBRARY
September 4th 2016, the Human Library® held a large event with The Danish National Association of Public
Housing Cooperations at their annual conference.
The housing association wanted to uncover future housing needs and requirements of some of their tenant
groups. And help the many local housing executive committees across the country understand these groups
the best way possible.
At the conference the 200 participants were divided into groups of 6-8 people. Each group ’read’ three
different ’books’ from The Human Library during 90 minutes, such as Convert, Sexually Abused, Widower,
Bi-polar, Blind, Anorectic, Long-time Unemployed, Single Mother, Ex-Alcoholic, Homeless, Lesbian, Jew,
and Autist.
This report presents the results of the event which altogether went really well. It’s an example of how
Human Library meetings encourage openness, understanding, and tolerance in corporations and organisations towards user groups which may be a bit different than themselves.

“Where can I borrow again?”

“It’s in the dialogue that
we gain new insight :)”

“FANtastic event!”

“The Human Library is
a good idea – dialogue
promotes understanding.”

“I’m so much wiser now.
Thank you!”

“I think it works really well. Something happens in the
room, and the participants become active and personally
involved. And I could tell they really gained a lot from
meeting people they may not otherwise have an opportunity to meet.” (Eva Seyffert, conference director, The
Public Housing Association)

“I have completely changed my stance
on a certain topic. Very enlightening.”

“Really amazing. Would
like to know more”

“Great opportunity to challenge
one’s prejudices.”

“The time was too short, would
have liked to spend longer time
with the other books also.”

“Always nice to get wiser and gain
insight into these issues.”

“It’s a great framework. To have an opportunity
to just ask away, that’s actually really exciting.”
(Eva Seyffert, conference director, The Public
Housing Association)

The 200 participants had a 46% vs 54% distribution of women and men. Just half were between 56 and 70
years old, a fourth between 41 and 55, and the remaining fourth were between 26-40 and 70+. Roughly
60% were from Jutland, 13% from the capital of Copenhagen, 13% from Zealand, and 15% from Funen
and surrounding islands.
