How to Start a Social Street

There are countless ways vibrant neighbourhoods and strong communities help people live better lives. In the age of “connected loneliness,” having neighbours to borrow that proverbial cup of sugar from is not only a way to share resources more effectively, but a great way to see the neighbourhood itself transformed into a powerful resource in its own right.

Guided by this vision, Italy’s Social Streets was launched to increase opportunities for meaningful neighbour interaction through self-organizing groups. Its goal is to help residents of a particular street get to know one another—establish enduring bonds, exchange hyper-local knowledge, and share needs, all by preparing a collective meal or carrying out projects of common interest.
