About the organization

The vision of making Billund into the Capital of Children is created in a unique public/private partnership between Billund Municipality and the LEGO Foundation.

In 2012, Capital of Children A/S was established as the engine that must both create projects, support other people's initiatives, invite to collaboration and create common direction on the many activities and efforts.

In 2019, the organization changed its name to CoC Playful Minds.

Billund Municipality and the LEGO Foundation each own 50 percent of the company and each year shoot a total of DKK 12 million into the company.

In addition to the joint activities of the Capital of Children, both Billund Municipality and the LEGO Foundation also work individually with projects that support the common vision.
