humanKINDER to ourselves, each other and the planet

humanKINDER à nous-mêmes, les uns aux autres et à la planète

At humanKINDER we are developing ideas to amplify silenced voices for systems change. We co-host learning events in The Welcome Tent to better understand each other and address today’s complex challenges.

We know that finding better ways to listen to voices seldom heard will lead to fairer and more just solutions for a humanKINDER future.

documentation HERSTORY

Ich schätze Menschen, die sich getrauen, über den Tellerrand zu blicken, um so den eigenen Horizont zu erweitern. Ich schätze Menschen, die viel spüren und ihr Herz im richtigen Moment öffnen. Ich schätze Menschen, die ihre eigenen Wege gehen, sich selbst ein Bild machen und sich nicht von außen steuern lassen. Ich schätze Menschen, die Empathie haben. Ich schätze Menschen, die ihren Reichtum nicht in Macht, Geld und anderen materiellen Dingen suchen, sondern in sich ihren Reichtum entdecken. Ich versuche, so zu leben, jedoch nicht, weil es mein Verstand mir vorschreibt oder ich es in der Schule gelernt habe, sondern weil es ein Bedürfnis meines Herzens ist. Und deshalb werde ich immer spüren, wem ich vertrauen kann.

I appreciate people who dare to think outside the box to broaden their horizons. I appreciate people who feel a lot and open their hearts at the right moment. I appreciate people who go their own ways, get a picture of themselves and do not let themselves be controlled from the outside. I appreciate people who have empathy. I appreciate people who do not seek their wealth in power, money and other material things, but discover their wealth in themselves. I try to live that way, but not because my mind dictates to me or I learned it at school, but because it is a need of my heart. And that’s why I always feel who I can trust.
