Human Connection - Workshop

What makes Community and why is it so important?

◆    ◆    ◆

'Mike's workshop was the nudge I needed to re-enquire into the communities that surround me in my town. The conversations produced some super simple tools for me to reach out and start different sorts of connections which have lifted me up’
Sarah Lancaster



Of all health determinants, community, belonging and social connection are so often placed at the top of list - it has been ranked as more important for health than the food we are eating. 

Welcome to the 'Human Connection' Workshop! As part of the Wellbeing By Design program the 'Human Connection Workshop' is a journey into community, looking at why this part of life is so important and what the factors are that make it up.

‘Community is a social unit of any size that shares common values. It is a group of people who are connected by durable relations’ (Wikipedia). It is true what they say that reality is shaped by the people we spend the most time with. 

Having a sense of community makes us think of the bigger picture and share experiences throughout life. It helps us to see that we are all connected and creates a sense of purpose. The effects of connection can be seen at a cellular level. 

The statistics are showing us that modern life has created a craving for community. Throughout the workshop we will explore why this is, the way people are fulfilling this desire, and the astounding effects that have resulted.
