Social Sciences - Social Science, Sociology, Ethics, etc. / Civil conduct
Catalan term or phrase: Convivència
This is taken directly from the wonderful new "Ordenança de Mesures per Fomentar i Garantir la Convivència a la Ciutat"

I know its in the Spanish glossaries as "coexistence", but I don't like it here, it seems to general. This is talking about day-to-day life. I'd like to use something along the lines of "[model?] civil conduct" but then I have this, further down:

Its aim is to "eradicar totes aquelles conductes que puguin pertorbar la convivència i minimitzar els comportaments incívics"

Contributions appreciated!!
