Esther Kjeldahl logged a week ago on his Twitter profile, and there it was suggested to her to go in and follow environment minister Dan Jørgensen. There was just one problem.
He had blocked her. Why, she knows not.
“A part of the democratic conversation is that you have a voice – that is not, after all, if one is blocked,” she says, when B. T. talking with her.
And in Esther the Kjeldahl cases, it is particularly restrictive. She is the klimaaktivist and has several times turned to Dan Jørgensen via the social media Twitter.
“Yes, I can no longer now,” she says and continues:
“He is our environment minister, so I think it’s quite banal, that it is for him to turn to.”
She remember even to have approached him about 10 times in connection with his work in The Green Studenterbevægelse, which even describes itself as a movement working for a greener future in Denmark.
Therefore, she also sees his opportunity to express themselves and turn to the climate minister of climate change issues, as a cooperation between the movement and the ministry.
“We’re working both on the principles of democracy. A part of the democratic conversation is that you have a voice,” says the 26-year-old Esther Kjeldahl.
B. T. has, of course, asked Dan Jørgensen, why he has blocked klimaaktivist Esther Kjeldahl.
‘It is a mistake, that she has been blocked,’ he writes in an email response.

moreover, He believes that it is important that she can contact him
‘I like to listen to everyone, especially klimaaktivister. The question is also not blocked anymore, and I am pleased to follow her and the other young people committed to’ write the climate minister.
When we spoke to Esther Kjeldahl, she was still blocked by the climate minister.
“That is not necessarily a loss for me, but I think, it is really too bad that we can’t engage in a dialogue on Twitter,” she says.
