From the Introduction to the Press Kit:

“This Press Kit has been created to assist newspaper reporters (and other media representatives) with appreciating the valuable contributions which can be made by the campaign Tipping Point Action: Citizen Participation in Times of Unprecedented Challenges”—and to assist reporters and other interested people with sharing information about the Tipping Point Action Campaign.

“This Press Kit has also been created as a way of sharing information about the Tipping Point Action Campaign with organizations and individuals working along similar lines. Much potential for partnerships and collaborations is brought forward by the Tipping Point Action Campaign. The Campaign Coordinator, Stefan Pasti, hopes people who access this Press Kit will see that potential. The contents of the Press Kit can then help facilitate partnerships to realize the goal of the Tipping Point Campaign—thousands of Community Visioning Initiatives to help maximize citizen participation, and exponentially accelerate solution-oriented activity in these times of unprecedented challenges.

________

The Community Peacebuilding and Cultural Sustainability (CPCS) Initiative (at www.cpcsc.info) provides research for critical challenge alerts, and support for collaborative problem solving initiatives which seek to maximize citizen participation.

Stefan Pasti is the Campaign Coordinator for “Tipping Point Action: Citizen Participation in Times of Unprecedented Challenges”. He is good at analyzing complex information regarding challenges of our times, identifying pathways for solution-oriented activity to flow, synthesizing such information into understandable parts, and organizing those parts into well organized documents (much like the work which would need to be done to sort through participant input during a Community Visioning Initiative).
