Humanosphere is on hiatus. Many thanks to our web design, development and hosting partner Culture Foundry for keeping the site active while we plan our next move. Culture Foundry builds, evolves and supports next-level websites and applications for clients you know, and you couldn’t ask for a better partner to help you thrive in digital. If you’re considering an ambitious website design or development project, we encourage you to make them your very first call.

Survey Says! How you can help steer Humanosphere

Dear Readers and Humanospherians: Please help make us better by answering less than 20 questions!


As you probably already know, Humanosphere is a feisty, independent, online news organization devoted to covering what’s happening – and also what’s not happening, but should – in the global fight against poverty and inequity. We have remained afloat on the wine-dark media sea, surrounded by the flaming wreckage of others less fortunate, by focusing our attention on neglected issues and this very unique community of people and organizations who really do believe we can make the world a better place. Yes, that’s you!

We’re not just surviving; we’re thriving! But we recently realized that a lot of what we do and how we do it here at Humanosphere has emerged from focus groups made up the same two or three people drinking beer.

We are looking at making some changes here and we want to know what you think, about what works and what doesn’t work for you at Humanosphere. We hope this starts a conversation that not only helps us do our job better, but also may help build community – through social media, website engagement or in-person events.

SurveyOneSo let your voice be heard! Please take the survey and tell us what you’d like to see more of in the Humanosphere. Tell us what we suck at, or what’s missing. It’s short and sweet, mostly multiple choice but with a few essay questions for those who have more to say.

We would really appreciate getting your feedback. This site is for you!
