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.

Since the 17th century, the world has significantly diversified with the acceleration of globalization. With this new era of evolution, mass movements have brought great cultural, racial and ethnic diversity within our communities. Indeed, while diversity reigns over our populations, social inclusion has, on its end, made slower progress. For Senior Fellow Stijn Ettes, the aim of his Action Project has been to educate younger generations on acceptance and equality.
