Neighbour Day encourages people across all communities to build and strengthen their social connections. Because every day is neighbour day.
Given the public health challenges the world is currently facing we understand that getting together physically is no longer allowed* for many of us. We encourage everyone to find other ways to connect with their neighbours and communities, that are not face-to-face.
The need for social connections and support is especially important when we have been required to ‘lockdown’ and/or self-isolate. Many already vulnerable and elderly people are without sufficient support. Physical distancing also comes with some challenges, however, these can be overcome with a little creativity and care.
Neighbour Day 2020 was an opportunity to expand our connections and understanding of community and ‘neighbours’ – including online. The ongoing nature of the pandemic reminds us that to stay connected we all need to be creative and proactive – as not everyone is online!
And of course, we need to take great care – as the only thing we want to spread is kindness!
We’ve shared individual #CreativeConnections Tips on social media for some months, in the lead up to, and since, the official Neighbour Day, 2020. Because every day is Neighbour Day. Check out our two top 25 lists below.
