A visitor to the Interactive Virtual Tour section of the JPAT web site, who wants even more information about how to get involved, will be encouraged to visit and participate in the various sections of the Conservation Network Center. Here they will find Discussion Forums, a Calendar of Events, Educational Activities, Volunteer Opportunities, Public Input, Resource Sharing information, and a Reference Library.
In the Conservation Network Center (CNC), visitors are invited to use the different sections and also to participate in the ongoing development when they feel they can contribute. This will make the JPAT CNC grow into the best possible collaborative and interactive on-line information source available over time.
A special part of the CNC is the On-Line Multimedia and Web Site Production Workshop found in the Educational Activities and Resource Sharing sections.
Another objective of the JPAT web site and the Conservation Network Center is to create a continuously developing On-Line Multimedia and Web Site Production Workshop. We hope this will inspire interested people who want to learn more about photography, multimedia and web site production. We also expect these same people will help create web information for the JPAT web site and for other protected area web sites for their favorite places where they live or visit.
The web site being developed now by Mountain Visions will need care, support and upkeep in the future. We are developing online discussion forums for collaborative project development. This will facilitate the opportunity for local individuals, tourists, community groups, protected area personnel and global web site visitors to participate in the development of the JPAT web site.
