Know Your Neighbours

Chatting with your neighbours is good for your health. Listen to CBC's Maritime Noon discussion with author Susan Pinker to learn why (the conversation starts approximately 12 minutes in).

United Way Halifax has been encouraging neighbours to know neighbours for years. “When neighbours know neighbours, neighbourhoods are strong supportive places to live.” Technology in our lives makes us feel connected but facebook friends may not come over to babysit or prepare meals when we need help.

Get to know your neighbours. It’s good for your health.
