Action Projects - Denmark
Inspiring young people to take action in their communities around the world
In the 11 months following the on-site Fellowship program, our Fellows work on their Action Project: an independent venture focused on promoting democratic values in their own communities. Action Projects are as diverse as Humanity in Action Fellows. Fellows apply their new knowledge and perspectives to the communities they impact—in whatever format they find meaningful. The Humanity in Action community is a great resource for getting support—be it with contacts, experience or good advice.

The GDPR-Monitor: Providing awareness and empowering choice of -your- data
As his Action Project, Landecker Fellow Frederik Kirk is creating the "GDPR Monitor," a service that tracks down your data and empowers you to make the choice on where it is used.
Lack of representation and integration policies that weighs assimilation over diversity make it difficult for young people from minority backgrounds to share their stories. In the 'Animate Youth Stories' project, children take the lead in telling their own stories and celebrating their cultural backgrounds through stop motion films. Maiken and Kaila, together with ANIMOK, have developed a 2-day workshop for children. A number of films have come out of it, which you can find on the Instagram account: animate.youth.stories. Based on the project, Maiken and Kaila held a film screening and debate on how to animate change at the 'Viborg International Animation Festival 2022'.
