LWSD 31-Day Challenge #28: Get to Know Your Neighbors!


From Live Well San Diego:

To help keep you and your loved ones safe, it is important to work together with your neighbors and get to know them better so you can look out for one another. Make a point today of saying “hello” to a neighbor you don’t know. Sometimes that’s all it takes to get a conversation started.

You and your neighbors are the ones who really know what is going on in your community. By cooperating with each other and law enforcement, you can help fight crime in your community in the most effective way – before it begins. If you see something, say something. Reporting crime is a community responsibility. The San Diego County Sheriff offers crime prevention resources.

Sometimes, however, we don’t always get along. If you could use a little help, look no further than Live Well San Diego Recognized Partner the National Conflict Resolution Center. NCRC works with thousands of individuals across the globe to help resolve conflicts at all levels of society, through their communication training programs and mediation services.

Read the Huffington Post article by NCRC President Steven Dinkin for some great tips on how to avoid conflict using the Aikido approach.

Editor’s note: Other ways to get to know your University City neighbors include:

  • Attending monthly University City Community Association open forum meetings at the Community Library on Governor. The next meeting is Wednesday, February 8, at 6 PM.
  • Sign up for Nextdoor’s Daily Digest. It’s one of the easiest ways to get to know your neighbors and keep in touch with the neighborhood. All you need is an email address. There is no cost. Here’s an invite code from UCCA https://nextdoor.com/invite/wcpedbpjwfjmhcgmzsxd.
