It is difficult to find a sense of community in this day and age. Knowing who you are and where you are from is important as well as embracing multiculturalism. It can at times be difficult to do both but doing this can create a stronger community bond.
Community projects can be a good way of bringing people together to interact with one another and learn about different cultures. Putting together a programme of community activities can be useful as well as setting something up online to allow users and participants easy access to information at all times.
It can be useful to employ a facebook “community management” social media agency that can help with local businesses and make sure you have the best available support out there. Letting them take care of the technical side of things can free you up for more face to face developments.
Using online technology can also appeal to a younger market who are more technologically driven and use social media far more commonly in day to day life then might have been years ago. Trying to build a good community spirit can also help with family values and will ensure the are that people live in remains crime, litter and graffiti free.
It doesn’t need to be restricted to the local environment as the internet opens up boundaries like this. For example you can access groups and communities in other countries too, even those are normally not accessible due to region locking. Take a look at this post for instance, which demonstrates how you can use a VPN to watch BBC iPlayer in the USA. You might think that this is not particularly relevant however using technology like this means you can access sites all over the world with ease. It’s particularly relevant if operating from a country with many internet restrictions like Turkey or China, a VPN bypasses all these.
A close knit community will stand together and voice any objections regarding community wide decisions and it can prove to be a very powerful tool to use if there is a burning issue at the heart of a community.
Of course it is easier said than done to start this from scratch but with a dedicated team it is more than possible. With luck people will also volunteer to help out when they can and you can find out more about the people who you live side by side with as well as keep your community safe and clean for your children and families.
