Sharing & Celebrating

Neighbours Day Aotearoa is gearing up for a whole month of activities, from 1 to 31 March 2023, sporting the new name, Neighbours Aotearoa.

The name change supports the vision to see locally driven
year-round activities, participation and organising around ‘Sharing, Growing and Celebrating’ in Aotearoa.

Streets, apartment blocks, rural communities, neighbourhoods, and suburbs are encouraged to connect, share and celebrate together in meaningful ways through small gatherings, shared projects, special events or a shared sentiment.

“We want neighbourhoods to have the ability to act, shape, and influence the things that matter to them,” says community developer Cissy Rock.
“This might be something that filters out beyond the month of March, therefore having a year-long support network such as Neighbours Aotearoa is needed.”

From humble beginnings and one day in 2009, Neighbours Aotearoa has evolved, initially to 10 days, and next year it will be all month.

The focus is on neighbours connecting to each other in their local communities, through common denominator activities, such as cooking, eating, craftwork, and learning.
