The Great Get Together, an overview
The 2020 Great Get Together will be the fourth time that the UK will celebrate Jo Cox's values of kindness, compassion and inclusivity. It will take place on what would have been her birthday weekend, from 19 - 21 June. While we will not be coming together for the usual mix of street parties, BBQs, picnics and sporting events this year, we will be using the weekend to celebrate the power of community. While always adhering to the relevant social distancing guidelines, participants will be encouraged to do something in their street or neighbourhood, or to connect online or on the phone. The Great Get Together is collaborating with existing major partners, including the Royal British Legion, the Women's Institute, and Facebook, as well as new partners including the Old Vic.
The Great Get Together forms part of the Moment to Movement project, supported by Spirit of 2012. Moment to Movement transforms the Great Get Together from a series of annual events to a year-round movement to inspire social connection and community action. Spirit of 2012 is the London 2012 Games social legacy funder, which proudly invests in projects that build sustainable social connections from participation in events and develops our understanding of what works in creating happier people and happier places. www.spiritof2012.org.uk
