Bio:

Kim Lindgaard Jørgensen is an eLearning Designer at CanopyLAB, which is an interactive learning platform and community for youth around the world. As an eLearning Designer, Kim is responsible for research and development (R&D) of learning initiatives that engage and empower youth to tackle the world’s most imminent problems. Kim graduated from Aalborg University in 2015 with an MA in Culture, Communication and Globalization with a specialization in International Migration and Ethnic Relations. For his MA, Kim interned at a community center in Vollsmose, an area in Denmark where many people face marginalization. Based on this experience, he wrote his MA thesis on the migrant experience of female Turkish marriage migrants living in Vollsmose, investigating how the hopes and expectations of the marriage migrants differ from the realities of their lived lives. Kim also holds a BS in Public Administration from Aalborg University. As part of his undergraduate degree, Kim spent a semester abroad at Tecnológico de Monterrey in Mexico City, focusing primarily on the role of international institutions and organizations and the impact of globalization. After earning his MA, Kim worked as Education Manager at CanopyLAB for three months, before spending 5 months as a Fellow in the American Congress as part of the Lantos-Humanity in Action Fellowship. As Fellow, Kim worked in the office of Congressman Jim McDermott, conducting policy analyses focusing primarily on education and immigration policies. Kim is a 2015 Humanity in Action Senior Fellow from Copenhagen and has been a member and treasurer of the Danish Senior Fellow Association. As his action project, Kim mentored on the course “Roma: A discussion of diversity and the treatment of minorities”, created by CanopyLAB and Humanity in Action, Denmark.
