The Alfred Landecker Democracy Fellowship



From October 25, 2020 to October 24, 2021, the Alfred Landecker Democracy Fellows work part-time on implementing their projects. Humanity in Action provides guidance, programming and supervision through an intense virtual and on-site training program throughout the year, including two in-person Action Academies in Berlin and Amsterdam. Across borders and beyond their own communities, the Fellows draw upon their existing networks and the new connections they make to implement their projects. In the process, they build a unique and supportive community of change-makers. We look for young professionals based in the European Union, the United Kingdom and the United States with leadership experience and demonstrated political or civic engagement. Candidates should have been born after 1980 and need to have: work experience of at least 5 years; an outstanding record of political and/or civic engagement, community activism, or social entrepreneurship; impactful professional and/or community networks; demonstrated leadership experience; an innovative project proposal; a passion for serving the public interest; a high level of emotional intelligence; strong communication skills and cultural fluency.
