Let’s face it, in today’s digital age, the first thing you think about when you see the phrase “connected communities” is probably technology. Yet, at LAPPY, we’ve centered our entire work on the principle that the most meaningful connections come from our real-world communities—and that technological advances should work to promote those connections rather than replace them.
The LAPPY KOMMUITY KONNECT ProjeKt concept includes exciting Digital Business Promotion innovations that will make your Retail Business grow manifold . However, we’re more excited about how it seeks to answer a pertinent question: How can our business encourage us to engage within real-life communities and live fulfilling lives in, well, real life?
Human connection isn’t just a nice-to-have amenity—researchers are discovering more each day about the robust link between human connection and our health. Social behavior has even been referred to as the “ultimate antioxidant.”
Technology and “not-so-social media,” as some have termed it, don’t appear to be a solution. A 2017 study published in the Journal of Preventive Medicine found that people who are on social media two hours or more a day are actually twice as likely to feel socially isolated.
That means that community builders must work to undo isolation, foster meaningful relationships and improve public and environmental health, all at once.
At LAPPY, we don’t just enable businesses—we enable building connections. That means both prospering business and prospering communities of people. That’s why we designed the new LAPPY KOMMUNITY ProjeKt to promote meaningful human interaction and create a true “connected community.”
