Out of Touch

Feature image for event

Progress and evolution of our future planet are often imagined in terms of futuristic technologies that realise the unimaginable within our daily lives, and this drives our perception of innovation. However, in our quest to embrace the promise of all that is artificial and inanimate, we are neglecting to recognise the power and transformational capacity of human connection, the basis of that which makes us human. Yet a positive culture that fosters trust and a sense of belonging can inspire us to be the best we can be, and direct human connection is critical to building an empathic framework for our thoughts and decisions. So why is this the case, and what happens when we as a human system lose our connectedness?

Discussing the value of humanity and the difference human contact can make, are Dr Fiona Kerr and Gill Hicks.
