Humans and isolation

Why building a community so critically important?

From a man’s point of view.

Almost half of Americans feel alone and isolated, according to a 2018 study by Cigna.  Though it may surprise many, the Cigna study suggests that the use of technology and social media has minimal influence on a person’s feelings of isolation.

The study found that face-to-face interactions, physical and mental wellness, and work-life balance have the greatest impact on loneliness.

People are craving community now more than ever. For businesses, this means that community is critical to success. However, forming a community requires much more than simply gathering people together in the same place or accumulating a certain number of users on an app or site.

What is the CES?

The Community Exchange System (CES) is a community-based exchange system that provides the means for communities to trade and exchange their goods and services, both locally and remotely. It could also be described as a global complementary trading network that operates without money as it is commonly understood.
