hatching connected humans
We’re bold in our vision - we want to change the world for the better. We believe that the quality of our connections determine the quality of our lives. Through improved self-awareness and “sorting out of our stuff”, we become better partners, friends, business leaders, politicians, teachers, parents - better humans.
We believe we can change the world by changing the individuals within it.
But right now, people are lonely and loneliness has been described as the biggest health epidemic facing Australia. Chirp wants to change that. In an age of robots, artificial intelligence and fake news where we communicate with our thumbs, Chirp’s vision is to hatch connected humans to improve happiness, health & wellbeing, through therapy, workshops & events.
The 2018 Australian Loneliness Report conducted by Swineburn University and the APS found that 1 in 4 Australian’s are lonely, & 55% of those surveyed describe themselves as lacking in companionship at least some of the time. Interestingly, this survey found that the older respondents (65 +) were the least lonely. Loneliness was significantly higher for those aged 35-55; our prime working years.
Loneliness has devastating effects. The 2018 report found that higher levels of loneliness are associated with higher levels of social interaction anxiety, less social interaction, poorer psychological well-being & quality of life. Furthermore, The Harvard Study of Adult Development has found that the quality of our relationships have the biggest impact on the quality of our happiness and our health, and are better predictors of our longevity than IQ, social class, and genetics.
Chirp’s vision is to demolish loneliness through assisting individuals to connect with themselves and others - at home, work and across the community.
