Recent Fellowship Speakers
Our program hosts experts and activists in a wide range of domains: from the European Parliament to the Anne Frank House, we bring the movers and shakers of Dutch society to you.
After the Fellowship, our Fellows run their own Action Projects in their communities.
Through individual Action Projects, Fellows learn how to apply their new knowledge and perspectives in their own communities. Action Projects are as diverse as Humanity in Action Fellows. In the past, Fellows organized lectures, developed podcasts or brought people together through art performances or discussion tables. Planning for the Action Project begins during the in-person program. After the program, Fellows will be assisted by the local Humanity in Action offices.
A Little Background Story of the Colorful Inhabitants of the Netherlands
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.
