Community Foundation pleased to see Oshkosh Civility Project interest - February 4 2011

OSHKOSH, WI - Numerous community leaders gathered Thursday, Feb. 3, 2011, at the Oshkosh Convention Center to learn about the Oshkosh Civility Project. See photos, "like" us on Facebook.

The project seeks to explore ways to bring civility - manners, civil behavior and politeness - back to the community conversation. The Oshkosh Area Community Foundation is pleased to be one of several community leaders, including the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh and the Oshkosh Public Library, to bring the issue to the community in the effort of inspiring a grassroots movement.

As part of a community-wide introduction, UW-Oshkosh will host an open public forum Civility in Everyday Life Feb. 24-25 on campus, featuring P.M. Forni, Ph.D., co-founder of the Johns Hopkins Civility Project and author of "Choosing Civility: The Twenty-Five Rules of Considerate Conduct" and "The Civility Solution: What to Do When People are Rude."

The Oshkosh Convention Center will host a leadership breakfast Feb. 24, and that evening the Oshkosh Public Library will host a Meet the Author with P.M. Forni, followed by a panel discussion on sportsmanship.
