Introduction to Neighboring 101 (2022)


Numerous research studies show less than three percent of Americans say they know the names of their neighbors, know a fact about them, and have spoken to their neighbors in the last month. This lack of relationships among neighbors has a negative impact on our neighborhoods, our communities, and even our nation.

Being an active and engaged neighboring can help people, organizations, and communities to expand the participation while respecting differences and embracing the diversity that makes communities vibrant places to live, work, and play. But neighboring takes effort, purposeful planning and time.

In these monthly zoom classes we will look at the issue of neighboring by highlighting examples across the nation of where it is being done well. Past guests have included neighborhood award winners, practitioners, authors and researchers.

Join host David Burton for this live zoom and question and answer session.Individuals that register (any time in 2022) also receive a link to the recording of the class if they cannot attend live. This exclusive class information is only available to individuals that register.
