PWF is happy to pass on a ‘Call out’ for The Neighbour Project for Melbourne Sharehooders.
The Sharehood is a ‘grassroots group’ – 2641 people with 4968 shareables.
THE SHAREHOOD’S DESCRIPTION OF WHAT THEY DO:
The Sharehood is all about sharing resources and getting to know people in your local area. When you join, you see the members who live closest to you, and the things and skills they want to lend and borrow. They imagine a world of joyful, sustainable and resilient communities where people share locally to meet their needs and help others do the same.
The Sharehood is trying something new this year. They’re keen to put their experienced community facilitators to work by helping one neighbourhood somewhere, anywhere in Melbourne, to make their dreams come true***.
Sharehood participants can nominate their own neighbourhood as the location for the Neighbour Project by following this link.
The Sharehood will facilitate fun and creative community conversations to help residents in one neighbourhood identify what could be done together to make their neighbourhood a happier, healthier and more sustainable place to live. And then you’ll work together to get the project rolling. Quite simple.
To make this project work, The Sharehood needs a pledge from at least one (but the more the better) enthusiastic resident to do a letterbox drop so you can connect with other residents in the neighbourhood and hopefully remain engaged and active throughout the project.
If you’re interested in having The Sharehood come to you, click on this link before March 10 and write some short answers to some short questions to paint us a picture of your neighbourhood.
The location of The Neighbour Project will be announced on March 15.
If you have any questions, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone Asha on 0468 794 235.
We’ll follow up on March 15!
