We're hitting the road in the lead up to our 10th celebration of Neighbours Day Aotearoa. As we drive across the country we’ll be running workshops and reaching out to meet people who are working to create great neighbourhoods across New Zealand. These interactive workshops are for anyone planning a Neighbours Day Event, or supporting other people.
Come along, share ideas, and get the support you need to put on a great Neighbours Day Aotearoa event! Check out our Road Trip page on our website for a list of our confirmed destinations and scheduled workshops, be sure to check back soon as we confirm further workshops.

They say a dog is man's best friend and that certainly seems to be the case in New Zealand.
Dog ownership has soared over the past five years, outstripping the growth in people in all the main cities apart from Auckland.
The country is home to more than 560,500 registered dogs – enough for about one in nine to be a proud owner. That's a pooch for roughly every third household.
Are you involved with a community project or organisation? Applications are open for AMI Community Grants 2019!
This year, AMI is giving away $30,000 to support organisations and projects around New Zealand. Simply share a few words about an organisation or group doing good in your 'hood - or a project benefiting the local community that needs a little extra support.
Whether it's a popular playground that needs a tidy up, a walkway without proper lighting or an organisation working hard to make your community a safer place to live, we want to hear about it.
Round One is open now! Apply for a 2019 AMI Community Grant and make a positive change in your community.
