It is proven that face to face interaction is necessary for human happiness. The rise of technology in young hands has led to isolation during one of the most critical times of social development. Trading status updates instead of hanging out, kids and teens are unknowingly robbing themselves of real experiences.
Another consequence of favoring virtual meetups over real ones is a lack of basic etiquette and empathy for others that we need for strong relationship and community building.
Add all of this up, and you have a generation facing scary mental health statistics, and unknown consequences of future communities that lack the understanding of how to positively interact with one another.
It's time to get to know each other again. The Social Movement gets you back in the room with your peers, and creates the foundation for stronger self-esteem, stronger friendships and stronger communities.
