Knowledge Synthesis Grants - Emerging Asocial Society International ✓ Verified Date 16 16 days until deadline
Before the emergence of COVID-19, a number of observers were raising the alarm over a different public health crisis, one characterized by reports of higher levels of social isolation and loneliness, as well as increased rates of mental illnesses and antisocial behaviours. Dubbed the “loneliness epidemic,” the crisis has been attributed to a number of recent features of modern life, such as urbanization and the rise of one-person households. Social media, video games and virtual communities have also come under scrutiny, as questions are asked on why the loneliness epidemic is occurring at a time when people are more connected than ever before by technologies.
