The "Oh Hello" movement addresses the topic of loneliness by creating an interactive campaign that challenges students to open their eyes to those around them and share a smile. I launched this campaign at my campus for a couple weeks and was delighted to initiate conversations on this topic.
The elements include 1) a hanging mobile allowing students to anonymously share their thoughts on loneliness, 2) challenge cards to reach out to a stranger or friend, 3) a challenge ball with prompts to pass the ball onto a stranger, and 4) chair decals that raise awareness for how students skip meals for fear of sitting alone.
Below is a short clip detailing the process and strategy behind this project.
