Does anyone know anything about this organization? I stumbled upon them at the Göteborg Book Fair this weekend, and bought their magazine. They seem interesting, trying to bond the Scandinavian countries.

The Norden Associations are the oldest organizations for promoting Nordic co-operation in all fields, officially as well as unofficially. Separate Norden Associations in Denmark, Norway and Sweden were founded in 1919. In 1922, a sister organization was established in Iceland, and in 1924 in Finland. [...]

The Norden Association is a politically independent organization (NGO) with approximately 70 000 members throughout the nordic countries. [...] The aim of the Norden Association is to stimulate and improve Nordic co-operation at all levels, especially in the fields of education, culture, the labour market, industry, mass media, international aid and environmental care.

You should visit their homepage(s):

Does anyone know anything about this organization?

They are very boring and bureaucratic.

I heard they agree with the Multicult.
