Vancouver

Say hi to a stranger!

Meet your community!

We are here to challenge the growing stigma that our beautiful city is anything but a warm, friendly, and happy place.

Accused of being cold, standoffish and antisocial, Vancouver, British Columbia has come under fire by both residents and visitors alike. Learn the story behind one campaign that is trying to change the perception of our city.

How will we change this?

We’ll start with one weekend at a time. All change requires a single step. The inaugural Say Hi to a Stranger weekend took place November 8-10, 2013 and then we dared you to embrace Valentine’s weekend February 13-15, 2015 and shatter those barriers. Here are the details on our next event for 2016:

 

Cultivate relationships, nourish your network and indulge in a hearty dose of kindness this Valentine’s!

Join us on Saturday February 13th at 11:00 a.m. at ZEND Conscious Lounge for
FRESH FRIENDSHIPS 

Kick off this love-filled weekend with some kindness, warmth, fun, healthy goodies and a few new friends! This loosely structured event is an opportunity to meet and chat with new people, spread a little joy and learn more about the #SayHiToAStranger campaign and values. Join us for some delicious ZEND snacks and beverages in a space that prides itself on its welcoming, open atmosphere and 100% organic menu.  Nourish your body AND your heart in a relaxed atmosphere where you can make connections, impressions and memories!

Say Hi and welcome the friendliness in!

 

What would happen if you went up to a stranger and said “Hi”?

You could meet a new friend.

Get to know someone you could work with.

OR, meet your sweetheart!

Utilize Social Media as a tool to actually INCREASE your chances of meeting someone new face to face. We encourage the city to say “Hi” to strangers and either film or photograph the experience, or just talk about it on social media with the hashtag #sayhitoastranger.

JOIN THE SAY HI TO A STRANGER MOVEMENT TO BE FRIENDLY AND OPEN. IT ALL STARTS WITH YOU!
