City dwellers seldom socialize with their neighbours today and the sense
of community has been lost. Why has this happened and how to solve this
(题目来源：2016 年 9 月 24 日大陆雅思大作文)
该题难度不大，审题没有陷阱，回答邻居不交往的原因及措施即可。思路方面，题干讲的是“city dwellers”, 城市居民有什么特点呢?现在一些大城市有许多外来人口，不是所有人有能力买房，只能租房，所以存在一种可能性，他们不断变换住所，这就意味着邻里之间相处不久，缺乏信任感;另外比较容易想到的思路是城市居民生活节奏快，压力大，可能没有时间与邻居交流;措施方面相对容易思考，比如社区组织活动及政府宣传邻里关系重要性等
Those living in cities hardly mix with each other and the lack of communication can
threaten community cohesion. This problem can affect their well-being, and it is
important to tackle this immediately.
The fast pace of life is one primary reason why people hardly have time to
communicate with those living next door.The competition is fierce in the workplace,
and this is why many people have to work long hours to show their passion for their
jobs. This can help increase job security, but they live under pressure and feelexhausted. As a consequence, they find it difficult to form and maintain relationships
with other members of community.
Another reason why city dwellers these days lack social life is that they tend to move
around a lot. People have to relocate from time to time in order to seek better
employment and improve their living standards. For instance, they may choose to
reside in a neighbourhood which is equipped with better facilities such as prestigious
schools. Because of this，they lack mutual trust and it is difficult for them to build a
lasting relationship with their neighbours.
To solve this problem, communities should organise activities,which can provide
residents with opportunities to get familiar with each other. These activities include
parties and sporting events, in which they can have opportunities to form friendship
with each other. Another approach is to launch awareness campaigns to educate the
public to pay attention to their connection with neighbours. They can, therefore,
realise that they can give a helping hand to one another when in trouble.
To summarise, the pressure of urban life as well as high population mobility has
threatened community cohesion and communities should design more activities or
campaigns that can reunite people.
