Action Projects - Germany
Our community takes action to defend democratic values around the world. Explore our Fellows' Action Projects here.
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.
By the People
Lulu’s Landecker Democracy Fellowship project, By The People, is a dynamic learning collective of public sector and community leaders. By The People creates brave spaces for leaders, organizers, and advocates on the frontlines of local decision-making to grapple with how to tactically realize participatory local governance at scale.
Tech Won't Build It

This is "Them"
Landecker Democracy Fellow Mamobo's action project This is "Them" is a digital series that highlights the voices of diverse communities in Ireland. This is “Them” curates common ground, debunks stereotypes, answers your awkward questions, and adds nuance to the everyday experiences of different communities in today’s Ireland.
Pan Asian Collective
Landecker Democracy Fellow Hui Hui's The Collective is a shared community and (digital) network space where members of Asian communities can connect and expand their networks. The space is the gateway for Asian Dutch to find creatives, role models, and peers while also raising awareness to the many Asian voices and people who are often invisible in mainstream society.
