Weave: The Social Fabric Project

We live in a world where technology can connect us to anyone in a blink of an eye and yet, we rarely look into each other’s eyes. We don’t take the time to really see, know or trust each other. And we do what humans do when we feel vulnerable and alone: we revert to tribe. It’s friend/enemy, us/them, build walls, hatred, erect barriers
There is a better way to live. Thousands of people across the US are taking time to show up for others… all the way up. They are building connections in their communities and weaving a rich social fabric. Being part of just such a community was what lifted New York Times columnist and author David Brooks out of his isolation, inspiring him to found Weave: The Social Fabric Project at the Aspen Institute.

Weave supports those who have found a more connected way to live. Weave explores what it means to weave in our schools, our workplaces and every other part of life. Weave’s mission is to invite everyone to start living like a Weaver and shift our culture from one that values achievement and individual success to one that finds value in deep relationships and community success.

David shared his story on the TED stage in 2019.
