Shumaisa Khan

Lost Species Day Programme Assistant

Shumaisa’s interests have taken her through the realms of social sciences, international development, and grassroots movements, all underpinned by her interest in advancing ecological and social justice.

In recent years, she has also been exploring traditional healing systems, plant medicine, and regenerative food systems as vehicles to repair both cultural and ecological distress. She feels arts and humanities are crucial, particularly at this juncture of extreme polarization, in facilitating different ways of expression, and creating spaces for dialogue and reflection.
