Engaging the community is essential to building a happy, healthy and sustainable community. Here are a few ideas on how to encourage others to participate in community activities.
This has to be one of my favorites -Some people are more comfortable meeting in less formal places so think about meeting locally in a coffee shop, community center, bookstore, park or anywhere people are more likely to gather without a second thought. Try getting to know the police officers in your area with “Coffee with a Cop”. Cute right? 🙂
Make your engagements fun and for the whole family. Try sponsoring a Family Movie Night at the local firehouse or Game Night at the local community center. I love game night!
Partner with others. If there’s an upcoming event, why not partner with them so that you can maximize your exposure? Or you can Create a Fun Family-Friendly Event and bring others on board. People love being recognized so get to know your local community.
