About The Hague Humanity Hub 

The Humanity Hub works towards a more peaceful and just world by supporting and strengthening the Hague ecosystem. We do this by building a community of active members – professionals ranging from international organisations and small NGOs to knowledge institutions and social enterprises – whom we support with services and tools to connect, learn, and collaborate.

The Hub acts as a platform for knowledge exchange and partnerships, and together with our members and ecosystem partners we co-create innovative, community-led programming designed to explore themes of relevance, identify opportunities for collaboration and kickstart new initiatives. We facilitate the visibility, transparency and access to The Hague for newcomers, and our work increasingly benefits the international profiling of The Hague peace and justice ecosystem.

Finally, we facilitate connections between the peace and justice ecosystem and people in The Hague and beyond, to give peace and justice meaning in society.

The Humanity Hub recently became an SDG House with the purpose to connect and support collaboration between diverse actors working on international impact to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
