At the Giving Voice conference the under 40 crowd talked a lot about ways to improve the communities we each live in. The major issues that we all seemed to face were:
- the age gap
- finding space in your new space
- being a community and not just people under the same roof
We talked about these issues a lot but one very awesome suggestion, which I brought home with me, was doing fun stuff with your community. My house decided on a monthly game night! We played cards, I lost badly, but even so it was really nice to spend time together and, unlike some of the dinner conversations, there was no talk of nursing homes, funeral, or medications! I think this will be a great way for us to really connect with each other!
