Aranka is the founder of Junglebirds

She is an entrepreneur by heart and loves nature and wildlife. Aranka has always been struggling to find a balance between economical; social and ecological profit. Until she discovered it’s a continuously dynamic eco system in which everything needs sunlight, water and air. In her exploration of this perfect balance she was inspired by the visons and actions of Jane Goodall, Richard Branson, Ricardo Semler and Kevin Richardson.

“The planet is one big system and every part of it affects every other part. That’s why we need to change our way of thinking on different levels: in the way we organise our economical and financial system; in how we rule countries; in how the humanitarian aid system ‘works’ and in how we need to redesign our value system.”
