Introduction

How to Connect with your Community During Self-Isolation

Keeping the spirits high and the community united! The following movements are examples of communities coming together to keep the positivity high with the message that everything will be okay and we are here to support each other. For teachers, parents and students, these ideas can inspire your community. 

#frommywindow

In Spain there is a movement called #frommywindow, where students are displaying their artwork in their windows at home. This way, when children take walks they are able to see the artwork of their neighbourhood friends and keep up the good spirit! The message behind the craft is everything will be okay.

Bear Hunt 

New Zealand has declared a nationwide Bear Hunt, in order to combat loneliness and keep children occupied during the time of isolation. Inspiration behind the activity comes from the popular children's book We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, by Michael Rosenhildren. 

The motto behind the book- We're not scared. 

Across the country, children, young people and even the Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, confirmed she too had placed a teddy in the front window of Premier House in Wellington. Credit goes out to Annelee Scott, the organiser behind the Bear Hunt in New Zealand.

See one example below! Where will we find the next bear?

HundrED Review
During a time of physical distancing, community spirit is much needed to keep up the positivity and continue to focus on working together collectively to stop the spread of the Coronavirus. These community driven movements are fun ways to engage children as well as innovative ways to connect with our neighbours.
