The Tamarack Institute completed an interview with Tamer Coliman, Director of the documentary The Great Disconnectand Debra Jakubec from the City of Edmonton as they discuss the importance of knowing your neighbours and the physical and social enablers of making these connections. This podcast will offer service providers and municipalities ideas on how to help individuals make these connections and barriers to consider when facilitating connections. The conversation highlights how important neighbourhoods are as part of an emergency response system. The discussion is particularly relevant for service providers in urban communities and those in "bedroom" communities. During the discussion, an innovative neighbourhood initiative taking place in Nova Scotia call target="blank"Life.School.House is mentioned.
