Some say that real communities are a thing of the past. We’ve apparently all got money now; we just don’t need our neighbours like we used to.
Have we got better at community-building in the last 50 years? Or worse? If we are being honest, our communities probably need a bit of help.
We can create stronger communities and better places by getting organised, encouraging businesses and residents to work together and undertaking small (and big) actions to improve our places.
We established the Town Team Movement to help you start a successful town team.
What is a town team?
Town teams are a model where businesses, residents, community groups and local governments work together to create stronger communities and better places. Town teams provide creative and safe environments and help to empower their communities.
The teams are:
- Not politically-aligned
- A positive voice and influence in their community
Each team has slightly different priorities and focuses, but all share these principles.
