How do social connections impact quality of life in cities?
Social Patches: The Art of Reweaving our Relational Fabric
Social isolation and loneliness are on the rise, and our overall well-being is dropping. Our lives are filled with pressure but the tools designed to help us navigate our complex world are taking us out of community.
Have you experienced this effect in your family, friend group, work place, or the streets you travel down?
Listen in to this Tamarack Institute webinar, delivered by Milton Friesen, previous Program Director of Cardus Social Cities. Milton walked through a brief history of loneliness and the research that has been done in this area. He examines who might benefit from the fraying of our social relationships, how systems might be driving loneliness, and most importantly: what role can we play in reversing the trend towards loneliness.
