Learning to Share the Spaces and Resources and Engage without causing harm or being harmed.
We need 21st-century civility
21st-century civility is the ability to engage intentionally
with each other, in the same space, along with our differences
without causing harm or being harmed.
And, because 21st-century civility is a new and uncommon civility,
it must be taught, embraced, and practiced.
A little about incivility...
These days, most people are simply happy and relieved to be employed, attending school or college, and/or residing in decent
housing. This is particularly true in those exclusive environments where gaining initial access as an employee, a student, or as a
resident can be a major challenge. Once a part of these environments, people do not expect or think they would experience incivility
and certainly do not see incivility as harm coming their way. What better place for incivility to thrive than
in hard-to-access environments with unsuspecting people?
It is not until incivility escalates into a massive problem of bullying, mobbing, harassment, violence, or even death that there is a
response, national attention, safety committees formed, and a call to action.
By this time, it is too late, and irreparable damage has been done.
To me, one harmed person is too many.
The Civility Zone has found a healthy and inclusive response
to the pervasive problem of incivility...
cultivating, embracing, and teaching people Mindful Civility®
and how to practice it. Let the healing begin...
