Fix our futures: loneliness

Book Event →

This event is part of the British Academy's season on Utopia or Dystopia - Imagining Futures

Loneliness is a prevailing theme in dystopian fiction and film. Yet with nine million Britons suffering from loneliness today, these dark imaginings seem uncomfortably close to reality. While the government has launched a loneliness strategy to tackle this silent epidemic, what more needs to be done on a local level to support those feeling cut off from friends and family? In the first ‘fix our futures’ event, we bring together experts from different fields to discuss how we ourselves can help break down barriers to social participation.
