Civility exists to build a better model of citizen engagement by giving civil society the tools to design and execute compelling collaborations that build a broader community consensus.
We believe the best way to build consensus is by embracing Civility: truly listening, identifying points of agreeing and working together on points of friction.
A more civil society will change politics for the better, transform organisations and give citizens a real voice in the future.
