by Kitty Jellinek
When I looked up the term Local Community  – Found the following definition: A group of individuals that interact within their immediate surroundings. A typical local community consists of business operators, public agency staff and residents, and their interactions can include the sharing of resources, information and assistance, as well as the establishment of commercial relationships between local businesses and consumers. Cited from: http://www.businessdictionary.com/definition/local-community.html However, what makes individuals interact with their immediate surroundings?

Local Communities & Neighbours.

by Kitty Jellinek
Local Communities & Neighbours. By Dan Street. Neighbourhoods are in a tough spot these days. Neighbours are increasingly less likely to involve in their local communities. Neighbourhood association involvement is at an all time low. Civic and community organizers have increasingly difficult jobs, as people change their focus from physical to virtual engagement. In the online world, people are trying to meet neighbourhood needs, yet it isn’t easy.

Good Neighbours | Local Communities

by Kitty Jellinek
Comments are off for this post.
Really good neighbours watch out for each other. They ask each other for advice, and offer to help, especially on matters that impact the larger neighbourhood. They respect each others’ boundaries but are quick to assist in a crisis. They look for opportunities to collaborate and to socialize. Great neighbours make for great neighbourhoods, and it is well worth the effort. Local community living conditions are greatly improved overall, when people treat each other with consideration.
