Danish-Turkish, Danish-Arab; more and more young Danes are 'something or other' with a hyphen. Communication designer Zine Yolal has created 10 entirely new words and a number of tools for use on social media that are meant to reduce differences and biased alienation.

It is a matter of understanding other nationalities, of cultural identity and new ways to a positive perception of people with roots in other cultures. Curiosity and dialogue are the way forward towards acceptance and positive integration of everybody, says the designer.
