Our Fellows are some of the most talented university students from their countries, with fierce community engagement, global outlook, and a willingness and ability to turn words into action. Each year they come to Copenhagen to participate in Humanity in Actions Summer Academy.

It is inspiring to get to know young and dedicated people.

“We are a family of five with two boys who are 11 and 13 and a girl who is 16. The last couple of years we have had young students from Humanity in Action living with us and it has been a great success. It puts an ordinary family life into perspective to hear how other young people have grown up, and it always adds something good when there is another language ​​involved. As a host family, it is also inspiring to teach young people who are engaged to getting to know and follow Humanity in Actions programs. It contributes with one extra dimension in this year’s brightest month for everyone children as well as adults”.
