Who we are and what drives us
Fairspace builds safe, inclusive public spaces. We do this by transforming the culture that perpetuates sexual and cultural discrimination and violence. Our vision is for a society in which everyone in the Netherlands, regardless of sex, race, gender or gender expression, feels safe moving through public spaces.

Fairspace is based in the Netherlands. We’re part of an international network of grassroots organizations and are powered by a local passionate team, made up of trainers, scholars, policy advisors, and creatives.
