Human connectedness defines the greatest need humanity faces in 2021. Meaningful connection is what makes our lives matter and it is key that we are connected like never before in human history, laying a foundation for world-wide empathy, innovation and human expression. Despite the exponential growth of digital connection, the quality of our real and lived relationships is buckling under the strain of forced isolation, fear, and an uncertain future.
How do we nurture our human connection to shape a future where our relationships become our most valued resources? In this hybrid conference, The Science of Human Connection – an African perspective, leading social scientists, emerging researchers and practitioners who work within a relational paradigm will offer their insights on how we are to understand and develop the science of human connection in our changing world. Presenters will interrogate the new shapes that relational science is taking locally in South Africa, the greater African continent and Globally.
The Science of Human Connection will create a space for a variety of inclusive conversations, research presentations, interactional opportunities, practical applications, multidisciplinary collaboration and community projects, informed by a holistic and relational paradigm, with specific emphasis on African philosophies. We offer a virtual and in-person experience with some innovative ideas and interactive encounters on how relational dynamics can impact the quality of our lives and provide an antidote to individual isolation, interpersonal disruptions, racial and gender-based violence, and policies that continue to sustain poverty, corruption and disconnection.
