Welcome to the forums.
It's not wrong grammatically, but doesn't feel right. Try to write it more plainly: near where they live.
The sentence is quite long and might be better as two sentences.
I'm not sure we can "following an attitude" though you can manifest it or demonstrate it.
In the future, please use a phrase from your sentence as your thread title. A lot of people have questions about correct phrasing, but you could have called this "nearby geographical area" for example.
But thank you very much for using correct punctuation, capitalization, and not confusing the forum with a text message!
