Hello, How Are You is a campaign that encompasses two council initiatives the Council Initiative on Urban Isolation and Mental Health and the Council Initiative on Seniors. Hello, How Are You? encourages Edmontonians to get connected to their communities to help prevent social isolation. Isolation can have an negative effect on mental health and is increasingly impacting our senior population in Edmonton. Increasing awareness and understanding around senior loneliness is a part of the Senior City Council Initiative.

Increasing socially connectivity and a sense of belonging in our communities creates a healthier and friendlier Edmonton.
Loneliness and isolation are overlooked problems for those already dealing with mental and physical challenges as they age.

Buddy Benches will be placed in Edmonton neighbourhoods as a pilot project to help turn strangers into neighbours.

Hello, Let’s Eat is a pilot project with the goal of bringing neighbours together over the act of sharing food.
