THE LOCALS / changing cultural behavior


Cities are becoming more and more anonymous.
It's not easy for new people to find friends to hang out with. We would like to make it easier for them, getting in touch with each other.
www.theLocals.io is used as platform to get information about the project.
Use our stickers on your letterbox, to show which activities you would share with others, like cooking a meal together or just getting a coffee at the bar next street. Strangers can fill out contact cards, and put them into your letterbox, to get in touch.
Its meant to be a non-profit project. "The Locals" is about the moment - about us. Let's change the cultural behavior.
