This Stylized PowerPoint-to-Video is the second in a series that we plan to produce for the purpose of promoting civility. It’s part of our ongoing Social Good Campaign.
As you’re probably aware, this matter has come to the forefront as a serious concern for present day society. At a time when acting civil toward one another would probably offer the greatest hope for a brighter future, it’s quite unfortunate we are instead getting exposed daily to what seems like mounting evidence of incivility.
We’ve seen this evidence in the media and on the Internet. We’ve seen it in our neighborhoods, on our highways, among politicians, sports figures, celebrities and even friends. Countless people have been personally subjected to rude and uncivil behavior while otherwise minding their own business – and too many of them have had to endure it more than once within a short span of time.
In this Stylized PowerPoint-to-Video, which lasts only about one minute in duration, we tried to take you, the viewer, on a brief but revealing journey of how pervasive and poisonous this circumstance has now become. It is based in part on an in-depth survey of more than 1,000 U.S. adults conducted by Weber Shandwick and Powell Tate in partnership with KRC Research. The final report that they issued is titled: Civility in America – A Nationwide Study.
But the video itself goes beyond mere statistics – rather, it draws you in with a powerful sound track that is both compelling…and scary.
Watch the video and let us know what you think.
And as we say in the video, don’t just practice civility, promote it!
