Community weaving is about creating (safe) excuses for people to connect


What if the primary function of your community would be to create excuses for people to connect?

  • Introducing two people who will be at the same event to each other weeks before the event.
  • Creating a buddy system.
  • Creating smaller sub-groups of 4–5 people.
  • Randomly introducing people to another member once a month via email.
  • Featuring one person in your newsletter a month.
  • Using a tool like SuperHive.

Thank you
