Denmark has constantly been termed as one of the best countries to live in the world. The small Nordic nation well-known for its excellence of life also ranks high on happiness quotient.
Here are some more reasons why Denmark stands out from the rest of the world.
1. Danish students get paid to study
Denmark has established the whole idea of free education. Students over the age of 18 are eligible to 6 years of free study and those who don’t live with their parents also get 5,839 Danish krones (around £693) a month as a funding. They do not need to pay this amount back.
2. Employees in Denmark get vacation money once a year
Denmark has a holiday law in place for all its employees. Under this law, they can choose to get a holiday payment so that they can afford to go on a vacation.
3. Denmark has one of the lowest crime rates in the world
4. Denmark has one of the briefest work weeks in the world
Denmark is one of the Nordic countries that appreciate short work weeks of 27-28 hours per week. One of the municipalities, Odsherred, also became the first regional authority in Denmark to execute a four-day working week in 2019.
5. Denmark is one of the minimum corrupt countries in the world
Year after year, Denmark has maintained its position as one of the least corrupt countries in the world in the Transparency International’s annual ranking.
6. 50% of Denmark’s energy needs are achieved from renewable sources
Electricity is majorly created from solar and wind power in Denmark for the past 10 years. The country now wants to become carbon-dioxide neutral by 2050.
No doubt, why everyone intends to move there.
