This project was developed during the COVID-19 outbreak. Social distancing, lockdown, and isolation place society in a difficult situation. But as it often happens during these circumstances, it disproportionally affects vulnerable people, especially the elderly, and those without economic resources.
It has been a situation of uncertainty, fear, anxiety and loneliness, but it has also demonstrated the humanity and kindness inside of us. Social initiatives have been carried out in every city, by citizens and neighbors wishing to support each other. The idea behind this app is to promote community building and to facilitate mutual support within these networks.
How might we facilitate the creation and support of local communities to help each other?
A collaborative neighborhood app to promote community building developing:
· Feed feature that facilitate communication between neighbors by providing a structure that makes easy to share information, create local events, offer help or ask for it.
