THE FUTURE: SOCIAL DISTANCE NETWORKS


MARCH 17, 2020

In the midst of Coronavirus, society has seen a total shift in social interaction, one that has influenced companies and cities to shut down globally. Experts have launched recommendations to remain isolated and practice social distancing during these times, and as a result the shelves of stores have been completely emptied as people across the world prepare for what they believe is to come from this – the unknown.

But what could this mean for our future? How will cities and businesses approach scenarios such as this one going forward? Although companies have decided to remain closed temporarily, financial cycles (rent, debt, food, etc.) will remain an obligation. Civilians are still attending work to survive and feed their families, and well as going outdoors in general, in fear of being isolated from the rest of the world. Social Distance Networks could be a solution to scenarios as such in the future, altering the way we interact in the workplace and public spaces.
