Saving the planet means creating a caring culture. Social ties are central to health, happiness, and civic life. Yet our frantic, distracted culture makes it difficult to maintain and deepen social connections. Trust and civil discourse are in decline.

- Improve your satisfaction with the communities you’re in
- Be more effective in engaging people
- Ideal for business, non-profits, activism
- Follow-up group for those interested
