The goal – to cultivate a culture of care and connection, increased sense of belonging and inclusion, and ultimately create a more healthy and livable neighbourhood – one block at a time.
What is Abundant Community?
“Abundant Community is based on the belief that every individual in a neighbourhood has a contribution
to make, and uncovering, sharing and the harnessing those contributions creates neighbourliness, and
also addresses issues as diverse as social isolation, crime, and physical and mental health…” ~Mary Sturgeon, Make Something Edmonton
Abundant Community Edmonton (https://www.edmonton.ca/programs_services/for_communities/abundant-community-edmonton.aspx)
At the heart of the Initiative… is a neighbour or two on each block, a Block Connector who creates a connection and casual conversations with each household about:
- Life on the block and in the neighbourhood.
- Having a block social periodically.
- Creating a confidential contact list for the block.
