"I Choose Civility"
Level 1 Civility Ambassador Course

By: Dr. Lew Bayer (Hon.)
Ongoing Course

Civility starts with you and you can be a Civility Champion. The first step is learning about civility. For example, many people think that civility is just about being kind or practicing good manners. Civility is much more than that. It is a teachable, learnable skill that can have significant impact on the quality of our relationships, careers, politics, and more. Once you understand how civility impacts us every day…from preventing schoolyard bullying to fostering world peace…you can be an Ambassador for the core values that civility represents. The course offers general insights, definitions, tools, supports, and resources that you can use in your home, school, community, or workplace to start the conversation about civility. The core concepts reviewed in the course have broad application and would be of interest to civil-minded people from all around the world.
