About the school
When we don’t need to worry about our own worth, we can use our energy to be someone for others.
There is a special atmosphere when you are on the school grounds. We call Nordfyns Højskole a 'slow world', because we value the present moment, in a world characterized by stress, the fear of wasting time and of missing out. We value the opportunity to immerse ourself in conversation, spend time wondering and reflecting, being aware of ourselves, our surroundings and relationships. Everyone has the option to be curious, to play, and to take responsibility for the balance in one self, in others, for the planet and the World.
At Nordfyns Højskole you become part of a diverse, international environment with focus on equity and the meeting between people across nationality, culture, social background and capabilities.
