Three reasons to spend your vacation on the school bench



The university paper “Uniavisen”, from the University of Copenhagen, features an article (in Danish) about Summer schools. Title in English: “Summer school: Three reasons to spend your vacation on the school bench”.

One of the summer schools described is the Humanity in Action Fellowship. The picture is from the 2021 Cph Fellowship and shows 2021 Fellows Lisa Trebs and Terese Freltoft hiking in the Faroe Islands. Terese is interviewed for the article, she says, that it was primarily a professional interest in the subject that led her, as a student of geography, to attend the Humanity in Action summer school in the Faroe Islands under the theme Human Rights and the Unity of the Realm.

“I wanted to challenge myself in a different way than I did in my studies,” Terese Freltoft says about the experience. “I gained a whole new perspective on human rights and learned a lot about myself and the perceptions one has. It was really cool to be allowed to travel to the Faroe Islands and experience their culture and how different it is from our own. ”

At the same time, the trip gave the participants a network across each other, Terese Freltoft says:

‘I still see a lot of the people I met on the trip. We have become really good friends. I have a community for life. ”
