Saturday, March 03, 2007 . No. 440. is an international meeting place for people with a scientific or professional interest in the study or application of a sense of community.

A sense of community is one of those basic essential human experiences, a perception of one's connection with others, that we need for our well being. While many lament the loss of this sense of community, it is alive and well throughout the world. We are hoping to bring people together through this web site in order to better understand how to develop a sense of community and address its challenges so we can bring about healthy, socially just, and equitable societies.
