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.

Who. After leading the first social innovation lab in UK government for nearly a decade, meeting people displaced by conflict in Calais inspired me to set up humanKINDER in 2016. Read more about me Emma Barrett Palmer and my 2018 call to action here

What. I am now joining the dots between an emerging collective of incredible people working towards a humanKINDER future. 

Now. Since August 2017, I have been living on the road around Europe with my family and The Welcome Tent, using food as a universal language to build intercultural connections. We are collaborating with people and projects who WELCOME to create a 'recipes of HOPE' cookbook. 

 
The Reframing Migration initiative demonstrates how it is possible to co-create a community where migration is social innovation, where β€œpeople 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.
