Hello, fellow human.
Our world faces many urgent issues that require people to come together and find fresh capabilities and solutions. Yet on local, national and international levels, it seems we are more divided than ever by social, economic, and political differences; less common purpose, more yelling, less listening, more fear. How do we get un-divided so that we can work together and move forward?
At Treehouse Institute, we believe it is critical today and for humanity’s future to engage people across social divides.
Treehouse Institute is an internationally recognized social innovation lab dedicated to creating safe spaces for brave conversations and new interactions. We use storytelling, design thinking and making, and other humanistic practices to develop programs that build empathy, agency and hopeful action in our communities.
Everything we do is rooted in our mission:
We make connections between people, places, and ideas. In turn, these connections foster the growth of resilient and prosperous communities. Being from Maine we understand the importance of both being resilient – hardy and able to bounce back – as well as prosperous – an abundance of financial, ecological, and social health.
