Open to a Conversation – at home

otc 2 tweed

The need/ opportunity:   People of all ages living disconnected  unaware of the stories and resources that others have to share. Sometimes this disconnection occurs  in condominiums just metres away from neighbours.

The idea:
Condo buildings often have multi-age residents…Some living busier lives than others.
When they have a few minutes for a conversation, they put one of these Open to a Conversation ( OTC) signs on their door. If a neighbour sees it, they know they are welcome to knock and have a brief chat. This could be standing in the hall if one was concerned about safety.

Caveat
Keeping these conversations short.. not longer than 5 minutes may help people feel comfortable.
These OTC signs come with some tips on making and ending interesting conversation.
