Research!

With the support of our Thought Leaders, we have been scouring the internet to find articles and information that can help inform you about the benefits of social connectedness and the negative effects of isolation on the population at large. We also want to do our best to provide you information on tips and tools that help you stay connected whatever your age or location. The Generator Project will continue to seek out new information that we think you would find valuable and will share it through our website and through our social media platforms. If you have an article or information that you think we should share, please forward it to us at info@generatorproject.org. Thank you.
