Open space: Communication / Connectedness

Following on from the previous post, a second subgroup came up with the following ideas through their Open Space Process at one of our monthly forums…

Issue: People are increasingly isolated from each other despite all the technology related to communication. Technology provides useful tools, but excessive reliance on technology can cause more anxiety-technology is not foolproof.


Educating children (and others) that one does not need to rely on gadgets to communicate, and reliance may diminish real connectedness.

Fun activities/spaces not involving technology (eg-no cellphones, computers).

Get to know neighbors-this builds trust, reduces anxiety parents often have about children, but relevant to nonparents as well. Start here, and build up, expanding circle of people you know and trust.
