No notes for slide
  • We need an opening, branded slide, which does not have any text. This slide must be on the screen until you start to speak! Important comments applied to the whole PowerPoint: there should not be any pictures repeated! We need to correct the colours of the text!
  • The following ten slides introduces the concept ofwilderness through! It gives a taste of the concept by showing one picture per PAN Park. It might actually be good to place the logo of each park on the related picture!
  • How do you choose between different car models when the specs are pretty similar…?
  • It is good to mention here how many hectares we have currently appr. 250 000 ha!
  • The following section should be used by park representatives when they are doing the presentation. Pictures within this section should be from the park!
  • What ‘mogging’ means????
  • Here the speaker should mention that we consider the park as integral element of its region! The icons demonstrates the activities forbidden and allowed within the wilderness zone. The green area is the total territory of the protected area, while the region is where our partners are located.
  • It is good to collect positive examples of the benefits and mention them during the presentation!
  • This slide can be used instead of the previous two slides!
  • Here it is good to mention that a network is stronger in lobbying and fundraising than individual protected areas!
  • We need to mention here a) who coordinates the verification issues within the particular protected area, b) it is NOT simple process to go through the verification, c) parks can also lose their certification, and d) finally acknowledge the park for the hard work to comply with the requirements!
  • Change picture!
  • The picture must be of course from the relevant park
  • The picture must be of course from the relevant park
  • The picture must be of course from the relevant park
