Strength in We
To me these photos embody a healthy and resilient community; one that is knit together with a strong sense of neighbourhood connectivity and trust. A community that knows each other is a community that can depend on one another in times of need and crisis. Strong social communities can ‘weather storms’ much better than communities in social isolation. City planning, zoning, and engineering all play a big role in how close a community will feel to each other. Regardless of the shift these past decades to an individuality mindset, let’s resist the trend and keep building neighbourhoods that are conducive to strong social connectivity.
