Who is an icecairo member?
A member of icecairo demonstrates the following principles:
- Collaboration over competition
- Placing the needs of community before the needs of self
- Participation over observation
- Doing over saying
- Friendship over formality
- Learning over expertise
- Social and environmental responsibility
- Promoting group harmony at all times - the Japanese concept of "wa"
Wa 和 is a Japanese cultural concept usually translated into English as "harmony". It implies a peaceful unity and conformity within a social group, in which members prefer the continuation of a harmonious community over their personal interests. The kanji character wa 和 is also an archaic term for Japan itself.
To maintain "wa" members of icecairo accept people of all religious and political backgrounds. Recognising that diversity is resilience, as seen in nature, we strive as a community to embrace diversity and use it as a source of strength. icecairo is totally neutral in terms of politics, religion, race and gender. Our members demonstrate this neutrality in their dealing with others at all times.
