Non-profit organization

Humanity in Action Germany is an essential part of a collaborative, international learning community of university students and young professionals in Europe and the United States. We are committed to liberal democracy, pluralism, social justice, and human rights, particularly in the transatlantic context.

Main Activities

We share our values through education and the support of forms of civic engagement that are shaped by the specific historical and cultural contexts of Germany and our partner organizations in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Denmark, France, the Netherlands, Poland and the United States. 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 German 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 Germany in our programs. The topics that keep us busy are human rights, social justice, immigration, identity and diversity. For years, we have created and nourished a community culture that is collaborative, intensive, caring, open to vulnerability, interdisciplinary, eclectic, international and fun.
