Approach radio stations (try to talk directly to the producers/presenters of specific programmes that cover local events) to see if they would like a couple of your panellists to discuss the issues on air..?
I'm planning to get the Cyprus panellists on air next week :) Rosie----- Original Message ----- From: "Hágen Nóra - Klímaklub" <nora.hagen@xxxxxxxxxxxx>

Journalists will be particularly interested in your panel, who they are, why they're involved, what struggles they have overcome, what makes them special. It doesn't have to be long, one paragraph will be fine. Put it on Rosie's press release and email it to newspapers, radio stations and bloggers. If you can, call the most important ones afterwards to make sure they received it. The more publicity we can get for this the more everyone benefits. We benefit, you and your panellists benefit, of course the environment benefits. This is a really great project with great people involved. Let's tell the world it exists.

Dear Rosie, I received your Press Release and also the article from today's Cyprus Mail which is a very good point for the debate. The press release is very good Rosie, can you please reply me at your very earliest convenience if all the country's coordinators have to write a press release? Where we can send it once it will be ready? I assume that the press release written by you is for your country's newspaper and here in Ecuador we are having problems with the government who is trying to manage our right to be informed or to give
information to the press.
I will really appreciate your reply and on behalf of the Planet, thank you very much for your efforts, Yours sincerely SELVA-Vida Sin Fronteras Mariana Almeida www.selvaeco.org El 12/8/09 7:04 AM, "Rosie Charalambous" <caracal@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

The subject is ³Is the Copenhagen conference going to be a success?² And we want to know what you think. Please visit this Wave and tell your panellists to visit too: https://wave.google.com/wave/#restored:wave:googlewave.com!w%252BJn82 3LvqB.2 It is very, very, important everyone reads the instructions on each Wave. Last minute technical hitches mean we¹ve had to go for a more manual approach and this could make the Waves confusing. As a result, we may need to delete blips on occasion in order to keep a Wave on topic. We will never delete blips because we disagree with a comment or because we don¹t want to hear what people think. But only to keep the discussion as smooth-running as possible. All tips, hints and ideas on how to make the process smoother are very welcome. Dave
