City of Vancouver's Hey Neighbour! program aims to increase our understanding explores sociability and well-being in multi-unit buildings

How can residents living in high-rise buildings better connect with one another? Through a PlanH grant, the City of Vancouver has been working to help residents living in higher-density buildings feel more connected to one another. In fall 2017, they took a diverse group of stakeholders from the housing, public health, municipal, private and non-profit sectors on a Hey Neighbour! field trip to tour friendly buildings in Vancouver. The trip started a conversation around the importance of working together across industries to support increased social interaction among neighbours in multi-unit buildings.
