WoCo aka Visit Copenhagen, who are handling the #escdk volunteer corps, pushed out a story at the weekend. I was all ready to play translation monkey as it’s not got much coverage, but turns out there’s an English version, plus two #joinus mini-sites (English | Danish). Who knew? Sharing (and findability) playing second fiddle to #joinus?
Cutting to the chase, this monkey loves the three bullet salvo…
- a model are the London Olympics’ Games Makers – given the natives’ small talk issues they will defo need to get in a troupe of internationals, plus crash courses in talking to strangers
- in the Danish version a Malmø volunteer reports that they were the public face of the city, reflecting its diversity in terms of age, sex, background and education
- it’s not in the English version, but Malmø had 550 volunteers, so Copenhagen will have 500-1000
A friend of #escdk watch was a volunteer last year. By the end of the week she was a limp rag. Maybe we’ll stick to snark.
