What is Respect?

Respect is a concept that has many different interpretations.  This campaign is about exploring our different perspectives, acknowledging our diversity of opinions and finding ways to respect these differences without necessarily agreeing with them.

Many people describe it as having regard for the dignity of a person.  Others say it is a difficult concept to describe and is very much dependent on context.  A common description is: being respected is feeling valued and acknowledged.

Following are some of the responses we have collected from Community Conversations to date (Plus an interesting quote or two).  Please contribute any new responses.  This section of the website will continually expand as the campaign grows.
