Changing a lightbulb at your neighbour's house, neighbors across the street watching your children while you run to the store—these are acts of small assistance: helping neighbors and receiving help from neighbours with minor tasks.

In this podcast series, researcher Liesbet Lommelen provides a detailed explanation of what it is and how you can apply it in both rural and urban settings. Additionally, several local residents share how they approach it in their neighbourhoods, both in a big city like Antwerp and in a neighbourhood in Arendonk.

This podcast was created with the support of the Flemish Government.
