At the regular meeting of City Council on Monday, April 24, City Council proclaimed each Tuesday of May as “Better Together Tuesday” in the City of Humboldt.
The Better Together Project was founded by Deb McNabb and is a youth-driven initiative that claims good things happen when people come together.
The City says in a release that all citizens of the City of Humboldt desire to live in a vibrant community. A community where people want to live, a community of diversity and deep connection, and a community that champions “Better Together.”
“Evidence-based research has shown that communities who have connected their kids/teens to the older generation have seen the clear benefits of being together; benefits such as mutual understanding, improved feelings of well-being, decreased loneliness, satisfaction from sharing knowledge and experience, and enhanced social cohesion,” says the City in a release.
On “Together Tuesdays” the City of Humboldt asks citizens of Humboldt to wear better together t-shirts and get to know their neighbours of all ages better.
“I encourage everyone to learn more about how great things happen when citizens come together; the importance of getting to know your neighbors, and how key intergenerational relationships are. Let us support our local teens, championing ‘WE ARE BETTER TOGETHER.’,” says Mayor Michael Behiel in a release.
