Turn coffee shops and cafes into a public forum to discuss hearing loss!
You could advertise the weekly meetings online, in the local newspaper, and at the coffee shop itself. Inviting a local audiologist or audiology student to attend some of the meetings could help jump start conversations and introduce useful information about hearing loss and potential treatment options.
Café Philosophique is a grassroots forum started in 1992 by philosopher Marc Sautet in Paris, France. His idea was to bring together people in a public forum so that they could freely discuss ideas.
The concept has spread and there are now thousands of Café Philosophique taking place all around the world.
