In the midst of a historic loneliness and mental health crisis in the US, we have the opportunity to make a powerful difference by slowing down to be with and for each other as we are, in our daily grinds. By practicing micro-gestures of care–which may seem small–we begin to see big changes in the atmosphere of our spaces. We find purpose in creating space for others to be noticed and encouraged. And we discover mutual relationships forming wherever we are, as our care boomerangs back to us in a virtuous cycle.
Cat Moore is the Director of Belonging at USC working to disrupt a loneliness crisis by empowering students to create belonging through design thinking and micro-gestures of care. She has created an experiential course for students called CLICK! and one for professionals called, “Create a Culture of Belonging.” She speaks, writes and designs immersive experiences across industries from tech to healthcare to the department of defense, drawing from nature ethics and the arts.
