According to Hero Town NL, most heroes are ordinary people. A hero is just someone who helps when help is needed. Sometimes it's harder to offer help, because you don’t know what you should do or because you would be taking a personal risk. Because you're standing up to the group to defend an outsider. Or expressing a different opinion to everyone else. You run the risk of becoming the target yourself. That's why many people just stand by and watch while others are excluded.
Hero Town NL makes people aware of how they can be influenced by their environment without realising. This helps them to stand firm and continue to put their own values into practice through their actions. Hero Town NL works on the basis of scientific research and insights from practical situations. The foundation provides programmes, events and a platform for schools and other organisations.
