Humanity in Action Denmark
We promote values of democracy, pluralism, social justice and human rights, particularly in Denmark and the transatlantic context, through education and forms of civil engagement shaped by our specific historical and cultural context.
Since 1997 we have especially focused on developing and refining our annual Copenhagen Fellowship. Each year in June 25-30 Danish and international students gather for an intense, challenging and inspiring learning experience.
We think about the big questions in life and society – like social responsibility, values, universal rights and empathy for those we disagree with.
As a small but international organization, we connect carefully selected young leaders of diverse backgrounds and identities to support them in acting socially responsibly through understanding other social groups’ perspectives.
We develop Fellowships, study trips, seminars, workshops and conferences that challenge contemporary master narratives by looking deeply into some of the histories behind contemporary Danish news headlines.
Together with experts from academia, activism, the arts, journalism, politics and the business world, our Fellows and Senior Fellows discuss critical social justice issues in Denmark. The topics that keep us busy are identity, human rights, social justice, immigration and diversity. For years we have created and nourished a community culture that is collaborative, intensive, caring, open to vulnerability, interdisciplinary, opinionated, eclectic, international, and fun.
