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