Neighbourhoods Work Block Party 2017
The “Neighbourhoods Work Block Party” is an innovative initiative that brings together residents, neighbourhoods and community organizations in a fun gathering to build social connections and create even more amazing neighbourhoods.
The initiative is made possible by the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th, the Community Foundation of Whistler, the Government of Canada and extraordinary leaders from coast to coast to coast. $500 in funding will be provided for each of the five volunteer led neighbourhood block party events.
One of the goals of this project is to foster deeper community connections which support individual wellbeing as well as help to develop a foundation for neighbours to self-organize to improve their neighbourhoods with community organizations and to respond to potential emergency situations.
