What opportunities should the CCOPP pursue? How will the CCOPP grow? How will the CCOPP measure its success? Click here for HTML or Microsoft Word document.
Can Peace Be Designed? A Powerpoint Presentation developed by Paul W. Nelson. "There is an ecology to the way people cluster and communicate. This makes new tools for building culture available to us. Satish Kumar explained the profound connection that we all have that few of us recognize. I asked him, "Given this profound connection, how do we build communities?" He said that communities are really only about relationships. It is profound knowledge for those who want to build a culture of peace. Building a healthy culture is about building healthy relationships. If we focus on that, we won't get sidetracked by other matters."
Draft CCOPP Marketing Strategy
Don't People Build Peace? - This is in response to the often asked question, “Why is Person
‘A’ doing so much to promote peace, while there are so many others in
his/her organization and generally who appear to underachieve their potential to
contribute to a Culture of Peace and Non-violence?”
