Brief bio--What are you passionate about?
I have been actively involved in peacebuilding and community revitalization work for over 25 years—as a writer (in a variety of genres, including short novel and short story); an editor (newsletters, quotation collections); an advocate of ecologically sustainable communities; a practitioner of voluntary simplicity; and, since 2001, as founder and outreach coordinator for The Interfaith Peacebuilding and Community Revitalization (IPCR) Initiative (www.ipcri.net)

In May, 2013, I consolidated 4 websites—The IPCR Initiative, Community Visioning Initiatives Clearinghouse, Community Teaching and Learning Centers Clearinghouse, and my Collected Writings website into the Community Peacebuilding and Cultural Sustainability (CPCS) Initiative (at www.cpcsc.info ).

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

The CPCS Initiative is introducing two new information and advocacy campaigns for 2014: the “Planetary Distress Signal” Campaign and the “1000 Community Visioning Initiatives” Campaign.

The primary goal of the “Planetary Distress Signal” Campaign (at http://cpcsc.info/planetary-distress-signal-campaign/ ) is to provide, and encourage the creation of, critical challenge assessment alerts, executive summaries, and longer compilations of evidence—which can be used as resources in the Neighborhood Learning Centers (and other educational contexts). There are currently 8 supporting documents for this campaign.

The primary goal of the “1000 Community Visioning Initiatives” Campaign (at http://cpcsc.info/1000cvi-campaign/ ) is to provide outlines for, encourage the creation of, and assist with carrying out stakeholder engagement/collaborative problem solving processes which are designed to maximize citizen participation—and which citizens from every variety of circumstances (every variety of differences in language, cultural background, economic circumstances, and belief systems) can trust, and believe in… (i.e. trust and believe that such processes will make best use of the knowledge and skills each person has to contribute). There are currently 6 supporting documents for this campaign.
