We're all in this together.

Strong social connections make communities more resilient. But today Australians have fewer close friends and local connections than in the past, and more of us say we have no-one to turn to in tough times. How can we turn this trend around?

In Reconnected, Andrew Leigh and Nick Terrell look at some of the most successful community organisations and initiatives - from conversation groups to community gardens, from parkrun to Pub Choir - to discover what really works. They explore ways to encourage philanthropy and volunteering, describe how technology can be used effectively, and introduce us to remarkable and inspirational leaders.

Reconnected is an essential guide for anyone interested in strengthening social ties.

'This inspiring collection of strategies and stories brings hope for the future. Reconnected shows that we are the revolution.'-Dr Catherine Barrett, founder of The Kindness Pandemi 'Reconnected offers practical ideas, told through engaging stories of successful community-builders, about how to build a more connected Australia.' Robert D. Putnam, professor of Public Policy at Harvard University and author of Bowling Alone and The Upswing
