TIME OFF – activities on

The main objective of Sydslesvigs danske Ungdomsforeninger (the Danish youth organizations of Southern Schleswig) which is abbreviated SdU is to promote the Danish child and youth work in Southern Schleswig.

Through sports, cultural and pedagogical services, we create meaningful experiences for our members – resulting in a wide range of events. The events take place in the local associations, the regional organizations or in collaboration with other organizations.

SdU is an organization in constant development. Our close contacts to Denmark, our local society and the rest of Europe give us the opportunity to constantly stay on the beat.
