What will you do for Neighbours Aotearoa this March?

Every March, we ask everyone living in Aotearoa to get to know their neighbours a little better. A simple wave or “kia ora,” a cuppa or even a street gathering at the local park – how will you connect with your neighbours this March?

From small, local get-togethers, like street parties, to bigger, organised events, like repair cafes and clothes swaps, everyone in Aotearoa is invited to reach out in their communities this March. The first step might be just smiling or waving to a neighbour.

Neighbours Aotearoa (formerly Neighbours Day Aotearoa) is a community development initiative dedicated to growing, connecting and strengthening neighbourhoods across the country.

Each year in March, everybody is invited to do something small – or large! – that lets them know a neighbour that bit better. From the 1st to the 31st of March 2024, Neighbours Aotearoa encourages people to organise an activity or event around the theme Growing Together.

The theme Growing Together offers an opportunity for people to practise aroha (generosity) and manaakitanga (hospitality) with people they want to connect with. It also includes sharing whakaaro (knowledge) and pūkenga (skills).

To get involved, visit the Neighbours Aotearoa website at, like or follow on Facebook and Instagram, register your event on the website to get support (resources, event packs, editable posters etc) and spread the word in your local community.
