Oye! FM Celebrates the first Indian Neighbours’ Day

Oye! 104.8 FM celebrated the first Indian edition of Neighbours Day across over 500 Societies in 7 cities on 16th December 2012. The society residents came together and celebrated this day of togetherness by organizing various fun activities, like picnics, potluck lunch, and games for all age groups. Large number of residents’ gatherings was seen in societies on this 1st time initiative where residents came forward taking pledges of being Good Neighbours.

Oye! FM had partnered with JustMyNeighbour.com to give a ‘Filmi’ celebration to the first Neighbours Day in India. There were promotions on Oye! 104.8 FM and across the Societies urging residents to come out and celebrate the Day in a ‘Filmi’ way to win gifts and goodies.

The enthusiastic participation of residents during the first event has initiated societies to look at celebrating this day annually and marking this event in their yearly calendars.

The objective of Neighbours’ Day is to bring residents of the same society together, to create strong and vibrant community that helps people to interact with each other, to discover what they have in common and how they can live together better. What better way to get this moving by inviting everyone in that community to celebrate togetherness.

The Indian Neighbours’ Day is derived from The World Neighbours’ Day which is an initiative of the European Federation of Local Solidarity. Its main objective is to develop a network of partners willing to promote a “better living together”.
