Getting Real about the Social Isolation Crisis and Finding "Planet Positive" Solutions in ‘Togetherland’

Researchers are finding that the climate and biodiversity crises are not only unfolding alongside crises in mental health and social isolation, but that in some striking ways these issues are also intertwined. The collective stress, fears, and isolation caused by climate- and biodiversity-related events, commonly dubbed eco-anxiety, often make people lonelier than they already are due to other factors–such as technology and the built environment–in turn further hurting health, relationships, and our collective ability to act effectively on the issues of our time.

According to Dr. Vivek H. Murthy, Surgeon General of the United States, "In recent years, about one-in-two adults in America reported experiencing loneliness." Statistics are similar for people of all ages in many, many other parts of the world, as well.

This talk will discuss solutions to this rooted in restoring and regenerating social connection with a focus on using positive, scenario-planning based "backcasting" tools as utilized by The Planet Positive 2030 Initiative created by The IEEE Standards Association.

You are hereby invited to visit ‘Togetherland’ and participate in the ‘Seen Transition'.
