Community Meets Takes off – Learn how and why we got started.
After several years of planning and development, Community Meets finally goes live! It’s been an epic journey, inspired our mission to connect people through the magic of activities.
Whether your the person behind the event, or the type that just loves to participate, Community Meets has something for you!
The Inside Scoop
In the past, trains were good for getting from A to B, once in a fog of romantic steam and whistles. The kernel of the idea came when the founder of Community Meets noticed that people were commuting on public transport without speaking to one another, glued to screens of various descriptions and isolated from the world by earphones.
True and observable by everybody as well as backed up by study after study, article after article – and it’s not healthy!
Statistics indicate that people are increasingly turning to their phones in social situations and in doing so, conveying to others an apparent boredom with conversation and losing the art of mannerly communication. It can be seen in restaurants amongst patrons sitting opposite one another sharing a meal.
Thankfully, these same stats reveal a majority seem to agree that this behaviour is not cool.
People seem to be realising that technology is a tool that can be used or abused. We can allow it to control us or we can control it, but only in doing the latter, can it open a world of possibilities. Community Meets understands this. Community Meets uses the internet to enable filling our offline world with fun and people and encouraging real in favour of virtual human interaction. Community Meets makes it easy for people from all walks of life to create and attend events that matter the most to them.
