- Convince danish people to donate a lot of laptops to developping countries. Donations would be through personal donations at [1], donations by danish IT industry through an IT industry OLPC donations initiative by Dansk IT [2], decisions by the danish Government to dedicate some of its aid to developping countries to the OLPC project, coorporate donations by big danish coorporations and an EU based Give 1 Get 1 campaign.

- Convince danish decision makers in the danish school system that OLPC should be implemented in Denmark, with a danish keyboard and the Sugar software translated to Danish. The goal is to involve danish pedagogy researchers, software developpers, teachers, parents, children, politicians and other in the danish IT industry into helping to improve and develop OLPC globally.


- Charbax is planning to document the whole process of the promotion, discussions, decisions and implementation of OLPC in Denmark in the video format and post all the videos in English and in Danish at [3].

- Videos could also be used on Teachers video-blogs when they want to document their process of integrating the laptop into the education. Using video the teachers can post good ideas for how to use the laptops positively in the education, teachers can explain some of their concerns and ask for help or advice to fix some problems and requesting software solutions to simplify some of the processes.
