Due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak, everybody had to quickly rearrange their lifestyle and learn how to get through isolation.
Keeping in touch has never been more compelling and challenging at the same time.
A recent survey conducted in Italy, states that 80% of the population felt like they needed psychological support to get through quarantine. We believe that if people had a way to feel surrounded by their friends and had been able to share activities, this number would be significantly lower. This is where our new app TreeHouse comes in handy as it guides the user in contributing to the life of the community: a virtual tree will come to life and thrive thanks to both real-life and online interactions. Sharing content, chatting with friends, or drinking a cup of tea together will make a leaf or a branch grow, but if the user is missing for too long, the tree will suffer from their absence, in complete symbiosis.
Nevertheless, checking how the tree develops helps the members feel the actual presence of the community, and makes them able to support each other, letting the tree flourish again.
