The word ‘city’ comes from the Latin ‘civets’ originally meaning ‘citizenship’ or ‘community member’. Therefore, whether a community is a parish or a city the principles and ethos of the Compassionate City Charter remains the same. The scale may be different and each area considers the charter from the perspective of their local community. We like embracing the origin of the word city as a way of uniting all of us as community members.
