Eindhoven

Eindhoven is a large international city. People from Eindhoven stay connected not only to the city, but also to global developments: Think Global, Act Local. Eindhoven now offers human rights activists temporary relocation, giving them a space to catch their breath. This makes Eindhoven the 13th city in the Netherlands to welcome human rights defenders.
