In this innovative project we exploring the physical spaces where people from all sections of society interact. As pandemic lockdown restrictions ease, we see again how public spaces become a site for social connections, or convenings. With this initiative we’re seeking to identify places, such as libraries, churches, sports associations, and public transportation, that have the greatest potential for creating connections across divides. We are bringing together civil society organizations to conduct training on how to best engage the ‘invisible’ segments of the population using the insights we find in our research. The goal is to provide civil society with evidence to improve the effectiveness of their efforts to strengthen social connections and interactions.
