Welcome to the Turning Point Project

The Turning Point Project is a new non-profit organization, formed in 1999 specifically to design and produce a series of educational advertisements concerning the major issues of the new millennium. The ads will appear in The New York Times and, funds permitting, other newspapers through spring of 2000. The issues discussed are those that will be crucial in determining the quality of life on Earth in the near and distant future. Despite this, they have not been given the in-depth coverage in the major media that they deserve.

Signers of the ads are part of a coalition of more than 50 non-profit organizations that favor democratic, localized, and ecologically sustainable alternatives to current practices and policies.
