Outdoor fun and games, a picnic or street festivities – there are many ways to spend time with your neighbours. Our experience from previous editions of the Gdańsk Neighbour Days shows that such meetings may turn out to be a real blast! Thanks to a simple gesture of inviting your neighbours, sharing a meal or organizing ways to spend time together, we can get to know each other and make new friends. Starting from 2016, we have been publishing a summary of these meetings in the form of a Neighbourhood Cookbook packed with recipes provided by the inhabitants of Gdańsk and its vicinity who took part in Gdańsk Neighbour Days. Anyone who registers their event will receive a start-up package to help them prepare the Neighbour Days: a how-to book, posters, invitations, garlands, T-shirts, balloons, cups, plates, bags, visiting cards, the Neighbourhood Cookbook and gadgets for the youngest neighbours.

Each year Gdańsk Neighbour Days host dozens of events for up to 20,000 people.

The most active neighbours who send a photographic account with a short description of the meeting will receive rewards. www.dnisasiadow.pl
