Building a world of
resilient communities.

MAIN LIST

 

Take a street and build a community


How well do you know your neighbours? Suburban life is often isolating and rarely a true community experience. This is not the case in Hulbert Street. Shani Graham helped lead a sustainable-living revolution that ultimately resulted in strong neighbourly relationships, the fences pulled down and the establishment of a street festival. In this talk, she explains how it happened.

Editorial Notes: Thanks to Nicole Foss for suggesting this inspiring video!
