Ratio is a social research space exploring how social connection shapes health and human development, using that learning to design better ways of living.
It started in a room in Liverpool where a group of young people faced with life’s greatest challenges, challenged us. We followed our way of understanding, counting, finding ways to alleviate risks. Instead, young people got us to understand them as they understood themselves, from the shame to the disconnection. Their remedy was relationships. We were and remain skeptical. But we wanted to find out more.
Talking is at the core of our work, so we curate spaces for those interested in serious conversations about the potential of relationships. See the R Word for more.
