I think it's wonderful that Mary is speaking on behalf of this organization. This is an issue all over the world. I'm glad she's bringing more attention to it.

Mary looks pretty nice. What is the children's festival all about?
If Christian & Bella didn't have school, would've been nice to see them with Mary.

Well, as the title already says it's an international film festival for children.
During ten days this year (September 9-19), various films, documentaries,
short films and plays will be shown that focus on children's stories, their
experiences and their perspectives. And as always when films are used in
educational work, the aim is to arouse interest, creativity, new insights,
the films should set the children thinking but also afford pleasure and fun

There must have been some activities. I found this link Mary hjælper udsatte kvinder - dr.dk/Nyheder/Indland from February 2009. It's about a cooperation between Mødrehjælpen, the Mary Foundation and two mortgage credit institutions. The aim of this project is so offer financial guidance to women in violent relationships to make it easier for them to leave and set up elsewhere.

Found this link Mary p hemmeligt besg i krisecenter about a visit last weekend to Århus with the purpose of establishing the same service as in Copenhagen. It says there was a press meeting afterwards at Nykredit's premises in Århus. Acc to this article the project aims at establising similar advisory bodies in other Danish towns because the results from the first 18 months in Copenhagen have been positive.

Summary of article in Billed Bladet #41, 2010.
Mary hjalp Kevin med at tale - Mary aided Kevin in talking.
Written by Ken Richter. (And from him we can expect a correct account of what went on).

While Frederik was in Grenå, inaugurating the new carillon in the main church there, (Sankt Gertruds Kirke) named in honor of his grandmother (mormor) Queen Ingrid. (*)
Mary went to the Speech Institute in Aalborg, about an hour and a half away.
Here she was recieved by the flowerman in the shape of 74 year old Bent Bak-Pedersen. He suffered a stroke four years ago and he has used singing to retrain himself and two years ago he sang for Mary.
He wasn't the only one to greet Mary. While saying hello to some of the onlookers, Mary got a spontanous hug from 48 year old Annette Nielsen, who aid: "Congratulations with the twins" and presented Mary with yet another bouquet, fresh from the local Brugs. (**)

Anyway, inside the institute Mary met a number of people who have suffered a stroke and now suffer from aphasia. I.e. Inabillity to speak, comprehend and write.
One of them was 37 year old Kenny Wulff, who had a stroke three years ago and he is now retraining at the institute. Mary sat next to him as a sort of sparring partner during one of his lessons.
He said afterwards: "She was really good at helping when there was a word I couldn't pronounce or remember. The Crown Princess told me that it reminded her of when she had to learn Danish".

The Danish Stroke Association is launching a campaing over the next three year called: "Give time". The purpose is to put awareness on aphasia and also to encourage people who encounter persons wearing a "Give time" badge, to show patience and understanding.

Mary said: "Talking and writing is matter of course for all of us, but if we lose the language, we lose a bit of ourselves. During a hectic daily life it can be difficult to be patient, but everyone should understand that the handicap needs time. It's hard work to rebuild your skills for communication and as such we have chosen to call the campaign: Give time".

As to whether she can better understand the situation of people suffering from aphasia, she said: "I've been thinking a lot about whether I was in that situation and I wasn't. I had my English language to fall back on, in contrast to aphasia sufferes. They have to start all over again. But I remember how frustrationg it was, when I couldn't explain myself in danish. Now I often have to remind myself about taking time, so that I pronounce the words correctly".

(*) Grenå, located on the eastern most tip of Eastern Jutland, is in many ways a typical medium sized town. If you stand by the church mentioned in the article, close your eyes and walk for ten-fifteen minuttes in any direction, then open your eyes, you'll find yourself in the middle of a field.
Grenå is unique in many ways however. The harbour is not located next to the town. The, repeat the, hotdog stand is not located in the town. - And it close at 18.00 - in the middle of the tourist season.
In the evening the local youths congregate at the railway station, because perhaps someone will actually get off the train.
I just love to make fun of Grenå.

(**) Better known as Brugsen. For many years it was the supermarket in many, if not most, villages in Denmark and as such a lot of the local activity, not least that of housewives, centered around Brugsen. This is where local news were circulated and there is still an expression: "They say so down at Brugsen", which is used to jokingly emphasize that a piece of gossip must be true. (Alternatively: købmanden = the grocer).

Here's a full gallery,

I'm not being rude here, and I love it when the royals recycle, but I would love to see Mary in something new.

Never been a fan of that dress for some reason. Looks a bit cheap with the glits on the front or something. It's cut is certainly safe.

Not sure if the mods will create a new thread for this one, or even how much significanse it has: Kronprinsesse Mary udnævnt til global leder - dr.dk/Nyheder/Penge

The World Economic Forum has appointed Mary as a Young Global Leader.

There are 192 Young Global Leaders from 59 countries.
They have been selected from the world of business, art, culture, media and academics.

Mary and the other leaders have been selected among people who have shown outstanding leadership, commitment in the society and successful accomplishments.

Once a year the global leaders will meet and discuss the global economy with global political and business leaders.
The meeting this year will take place in Puero Vallarta in Mexico on 14-18. April.

The World Economic Forum is one of the leading fora for discussing economic issues.

- Personally I haven't heard about it before and I guess the main purpose is to exchange ideas and views in the vain hope of influencing world leaders. How much influence it really has is debatable, I guess.

Billed Bladet infoms us that the Norwegian CP-couple are also members: Billed-Bladet - Kronprinsesse Mary udnævnt som global leder

The Young Global Leaders are appointed for a five year term, in one of the following categories: business, political, intellectual, arts and culture, societal, and opinion.

According to the WEF site, Frederik was appointed a YGL in 2005 (as his five-year term is over, he now belongs to the YGL Alumni Community). I remember reading about that around that time or the year after. This was the same year as the appointments of Prince Haakon, Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Victoria.

Other royals who are either current YGLs or YGL Alums include:
-Princess Mabel of Orange-Nassau (2006)
-Prince Jaime of Bourbon-Parma (2007)
-Princess Mathilde of Belgium (2007)
-King Jigme Khesar of Bhutan (2008)
-Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum (2008)
-Princess Lalla Salma of Morocco (2008)
-Princess Mette-Marit of Norway (2010)
-Prince Khalid bin Bandar bin Sultan (2010)
