Neighbours Day encourages people to go one step further in getting to know their neighbours. This could be by inviting them over for a cup of tea, collecting contact details, having a street pot luck or BBQ, or sharing some baking, home-grown produce or a kind deed.
The MHF is a partner of the Neighbours Day Aotearoa development team, along with Lifewise, Neighbourhood Support and Inspiring Communities. The campaign is also supported by the Tindall Foundation.
We are currently working together to create a social movement of neighbourliness 365 days of the year. Neighbours Day Aotearoa 2019 will be on 22–31 March.
