Let’s celebrate our City of Neighbours!
City of Neighbours Day is a People-Powered Festival: community activities all across London, all on one day, led by all kinds of people. It’s taking place on Saturday, July 13, 2019.
In 2017 and 2018, London joined cities across Canada and around the world in taking part in “100 in 1 Day”. This year, although there is no event taking place nationally, Londoners are celebrating our very own “City of Neighbours Day” on Saturday, July 13.
Pillar Nonprofit Network & Innovation Works would like to invite you to our front steps for the following activity:
- Penny for Your Thoughts: Building Community and Shifting Thinking Through a Public 'Thought' Display
Join our Community Animators on the front steps of Innovation Works for a little music, a lemonade break and an opportunity to participate in our Public Thought Display.
Display your thoughts with us. Everyone is welcome to attend.
What is City of Neighbours Day?
“City of Neighbours Day” is a partnership between the Urban League of London and Reimagine Co, who are excited to collaborate on this project to celebrate our city of neighbours. This year is the 50th birthday of the Urban League, and we hope to have at least 50 community activities on that one day!
The Urban League has been a pillar of the community for 5 decades, operating as an umbrella group to community and neighbourhood associations, building capacity and facilitating connections for neighbours and members across London.
Reimagine Co, founded in 2018, is a community hub located in the old Novack’s building on King Street. Its mission is to help Londoners to live more sustainable and connected lives, through workshops, demonstrations, experiments and shared learning.
