Rebecca Harrington – passionate community advocate – came across the following finding: many people today recognise they are isolated from their neighbours, yet are unsure what to do about it. After hearing that planned neighbourhood celebrations were becoming commonplace worldwide, Rebecca sought to establish a similar annual campaign in New Zealand, now celebrated annually as Neighbours Day Aotearoa.
Neighbours Day Aotearoa is a collaborative campaign organised and supported by Lifewise, Inspiring Communities, The Mental Health Foundation, Christchurch Methodist Mission and New Zealand Red Cross. Thousands of neighbours, organisations, local government and local businesses have been involved, bringing neighbours together over the last weekend in March each year.
When: 24-25th March 2018
