FOR KIDS

Generator Projects are as much for kids and maybe even more important! Modelling good behaviors for kids today and explaining why face to face social connections are so important is an important part of being a parent. Have the kids power down and power up the fun with family, friends or neighbours. Let’s get kids generating their own experiences instead of watching everyone else on social media. Getting kids active is a great way to get them to put the technology down!

CONDO OR APARTMENT BUILDING

With increasing density being a growing issue for cities around the world, hosting your own Generator Project in condos and apartment buildings can be a great way to build new connections with neighbours and new friends. You don’t need to tackle the whole building at once, if it’s too much to take on, but every little step counts. Now you can wake up looking forward to the walk to the elevator each morning! Here are some ideas to get your started.

  • Coffee with a neighbour
  • Hallway dinner
  • Party room lunch or dinner
  • Card night/board game
  • Dinner course tour from apartment to apartment
  • Rooftop soiree at night
  • Lobby social
  • Morning walk or hike
  • Wine and cheese
  • Owner/tenant speaker series
  • Pot luck
  • Dog walk group
  • Coffee chat hour
