To prepare for the future, the values upon which society is built need to change. We need to be humanKINDER to ourselves, each other and the planet.

Now. Since August 2017, I have been living on the road around Europe with my family and The Welcome TentWe are using the universal language of food to build intercultural connections, challenge injustice and celebrate our shared humanity. I am documenting our journey with 'recipes of HOPE', shared and cooked with incredible people working towards a humanKINDER future.

The Reframing Migration initiative demonstrates how it is possible to co-create a community where migration is social innovation, where “people on the move” are welcomed and collaborate as equals, generating value for everyone. Reframing Migration gives a theoretical framework with foundations in reason and inspiration from humanity, demonstrating that by learning from each other we will find more similarities than differences, that enable us to live well together.
