Belonging is a powerful feeling that is important for our individual well-being. Belonging is the glue that holds our community together.
Vital Signs examines the most significant challenges our community is faced with, and they each connect to our innate need to truly belong.
There are global targets for each of these challenges, found in the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Vital Signs is aligned with these so that locally we can join the global call to action to end poverty, tackle inequalities, and create a more sustainable and thriving world - because global change starts locally first...

Today, too many of our neighbours don’t have the safety and security of a true sense of belonging in our community.
