I'd like to reflect with you on an issue that has been occuring worldwide: Fading local communities.
How can we effectively share local heritage in order to enforce people's love for their neighborhood and create stronger neighborhood communities?
This is a very interesting question, one to which I'm not sure we can ever find a definitive answer for. Some communities, which are smaller, rely on the community itself to keep them together. For example, they may try and organize a block party once a year, to be able to keep up with their neighbors.
In other instances, it's a bit harder to be able to do this. Take city neighborhoods, for example. On a weekly basis, we receive a "community" newspaper which highlights news and activities in the area, but I oft not see people in our community out and about. In fact, I don't even know who my neighbors are.
Organizing community events is good, but many people will ignore them. What else can we do to make a neighborhood come together?
Thanks for your feedback! Team Branch
