Heroes Nearby initiative aims to inspire people to respond to and care for each other, to give hope and recall the importance of the universal human values of compassion, selflessness and courage. The main tool of the Heroes Nearby is a free mobile app that connects the people who need help with local community Heroes. One of the goals of the project is to engage students and young people and ultimately create a global network of humanity and goodness.
An open invitation for colleges and schools to actively participate in Heroes Nearby initiative is underway and the Faculty of Economics at the University of Rijeka has become the first educational organization actively involved in the project.
The City of Heroes
Heroes Nearby fulfills one of our basic human needs – to feel secure. To have a sense that you are not alone in situations where you require help. For cities, universities and communities, it helps make streets a safer place, prevents violence, promotes action, compassion and nonviolence. The goal is to create a city-level safety net.
