|Why are there more national naturist organisations?|
It is not simple to answer this qustion. There is no doubt that the limited number of naturist in Danmark would have more influence if they were united, but that is not how things look like right now. On the other hand the two Danish organisations complement each other quite good.
Dansk Naturist Union (DNU)Dansk Naturist Union (DNU) is the old traditional naturist organisation, and they represent Danmark in the International Naturist Federatio/images/images/imagesn (INF). DNU is organized with a number of local clubs of which six are running naturist campings. That is why activities in DNU are closely connected to campihg.
Selv om DNU's formål bl.a. er at "at virke for accept og udbredelse af naturismens idé" ville det nok være synd at hævde at DNU har markeret sig tydeligt i medierne i de sidste mange år.
Danske Naturister (DN)Danske Naturister (DN) is not an old organisation. It was founded in the year 2000 as Danske Unge Naturister (DUN). In 2003 the name was changed to Danske Naturister while Danske Unge Naturister became the name of an activity-group inside DN. DN has numerous local clubs (all non-landed) which arranges naturist-swimming in local swimming facilities during winter. DN is not directly involved in running camping sites, but two of the largest Danish naturist campings has left DNU and is now collaborating with DN. DN is working on spreading accept and knowledge about naturism, and has amongst other things published the book "Nøgen Naturligvis!", they has participated in founding the first and only Danish travel agency for naturist recreation Rassol Travel. DN is promoting skinny-dipping in Denmark, and is running the internet-service strandguide.dk. Futhermore DN is running some open internet-forums about naturism.
Both DN and DNU has youth groups. DN's youth-group "Danske Unge Naturister" (DUN) was actually founded before DN, and DN was in a way founded by DUN-members that became to old. DUN has ever since the start arranged youth-camps and in that way introduced many young danes to naturism. DNU has only in 2007 started their youth-group "Naturistungdom" (NU), that so far has not made any activities.
