On Saturday June 1st Good Neighbors had the opportunity to participate in Gathering on the Green, London’s oldest and longest running community festival. The event took place in the heart of London, Wortley Village, where a variety of vendors, community groups, and businesses came together to celebrate community. Good Neighbors is working on bridging the local and global together, in turn to have a world that lives in harmony with one another. The goal was to provide the local London community with information of global issues and the ways in which they can help. Good Neighbors was able to have many important conversations and learn from key stakeholders within the community.
During the Gathering on the Green event Good Neighbors was able to raise awareness of global issues, particularly focusing on the new global campaign, Better Life for Girls, which is working to not only provide menstrual products for young girls in Uganda, but as well educate young girls on proper menstrual health. The event was a success in its ability to inspire the local London community that they can play a role in changing the lives of people all over the world. Good Neighbors will be at a variety of events in London and Toronto over the summer.
