Add to Calendar September 27 1:30 pm September 27 3:00 pm America/New_York On Belonging: A conversation on inclusion

Join Synergos for the launch of On Belonging: Finding Connection in an Age of Isolation, Kim Samuel’s new book exploring the crisis of social isolation and how we can overcome it.

Through stories from around the world we’ll learn about steps we can each take to get beyond division and create belonging across four dimensions: in our relationships with others, in our rootedness in nature, in our ability to influence political and economic decision-making, and in our finding of meaning and purpose in our lives.

We’ll take a deep look at Synergos’ experiences in South Africa, where we’ve worked with partners to address social isolation among children and communities in the context of poverty. These efforts, conducted with support and partnership from the Samuel Family Foundation, have directly benefited thousands of children and contributed to more inclusive and effective nonprofit and community programming for kids, caregivers, and their communities.

And we’ll hear about related approaches to overcome isolation and build social connectedness are improving lives in the contexts of human rights, refugees and immigration, physical and mental health and wellness, and more.

By strengthening social connections, we can build a more inclusive, peaceful, just and sustainable world.

Our formal program will be followed by a book signing by Kim Samuel and a networking reception.
