Espace MUNI invites municipalities, organizations and citizens to come together on 5 June to celebrate the 15th Neighbor’s Day. On the occasion of this festive annual event, community members will be invited to organize a virtual party that will allow them to reconnect or establish links with their area. Although the mood will be high, citizens who want to do outdoor recreational or sports activities in groups of eight (if the situation is permissible in their area) must strictly respect the health regulations in force in their area, avoid gatherings, and stay away from Two meters. From neighbors and wear a face covering.
Born in France in 1999, and now promoted by Espace MUNI, Neighbor’s Day encourages citizens to renew their annual activity during an activity they organize with their region, on the first Saturday of June. The goal is to create and strengthen solidarity bonds in neighborhoods to build more humane municipalities.
We invite municipalities to register on the Espace MUNI website and promote a virtual neighbors day for their citizens. Moreover, many ideas for activities for this formula are shared in espacemuni.org. We decided to keep Neighbor’s Day because it has multiple benefits that can be observed in the communities that participate in it. We note, among other things, mutual assistance between neighbors, a heightened sense of security, new ties between families and generations, as well as increased citizen participation. However, we must be very careful in the current context and always organize the parties that will be held in accordance with the sanitary rules in force in the region. Virtual Neighbor’s Day is an interesting alternative! », Confirms the President of Espace Muni and Mayor of the city of Brossard Doreen Asaad.
