Be polite and friendlyIt seems a little obvious said like that, we admit it. But so that your neighbors have you at the right one must respect them. Have you just converted? Introduce yourself at each meeting, specifying which floor you live on. Most of the time, the conversation will follow naturally. If you are planning a rack, don't forget to leave a note for your neighbors, apologizing in advance for any noise and inviting them to drop by for a drink. To break the loneliness and isolation of the elderly, residents of your building or your neighborhood, there is even a site, Voisin-age.fr, launched by Les Petits Frères des Pauvres.

Get involved in the life of the buildingThe best way to make yourself known and appreciated by your neighbors and to get involved with them. In particular, you can become a (voluntary) union advisor and act as a link between the owners and the trustee. For example, you will have the power to request the convening of a general meeting and it is to you that your neighbors will turn for any questions about the operation of the building. A major role therefore, which requires availability and listening. Do you want to invest differently? Each year in the spring, the Neighbors' Festival takes place. If there is no concierge in your building, why not take the initiative to organize this emblematic event allowing everyone to get to know each other? If you live in a housing estate, you can also start the "clean neighborhood" operation, very widespread in Anglo-Saxon countries and which consists in ridding the streets of all waste. A very unifying and eco-responsible clean up.
Be unitedEven if it means living in community, you might as well help each other! Do small services for your neighbors, obviously for revenge. If you live in a tribe and other families have children of the same age, get closer to them: perhaps the parents will be delighted to know that they will spend Wednesday afternoon with you and that they will be able in exchange to help you out for some lunchtime? In the same way, maybe a nice retired person will be delighted to keep your jokes to free you up for a few evenings and that in return you can bring his shopping back to him? It is in this spirit that the Voisins solidaire association was born, in order to develop small services between neighbors that facilitate daily life.
Helping each other out with neighbors, a great way to live together
