WELCOME

At humanKINDER we are developing ideas to amplify silenced voices for systems change.

Using our collective expertise in social innovation, we co-host learning events in The Welcome Tent to better understand and address today’s complex challenges.

We are experts in listening to voices seldom heard, in the knowledge that this will lead to fairer and more just solutions for the future.

Founder Emma Barrett Palmer is currently writing a book with the support of Editor-in-Chief at Global Health Aging Sophie Okolo. Weaving together recipes of HOPE cooked and shared together with her family in The Welcome Tent, Emma is celebrating the potential of food as a universal language.

This summer we have been at the World Health Assembly in Geneva and have been working hard behind the scenes with Debalina Bera, a Design and Business Strategist from Bengal, India.
