|In the future, Parks of the World plans to develop computer applications for the administration, management, planning, and development of reserves, parks, and park systems to be distributed free to organizations that need this assistance. These computer applications can be tailored for specific needs for different classifications of parks and types of biodiversity management areas. Parks of the World's long-term goal is to continue developing and enlarging the Plan Earth database and making the database available to affiliate countries and organizations. This database will not be based on existing information provided to the UN by countries but will view the earth and the sensitive environments that need to be preserved or reconstructed.
We plan to list current information at our Internet site on existing parks and reserves that provide the earth with a sustainable environment. Presently, the best information on national parks and reserves is a group of lists developed by the United Nations . We are different for the United Nations and the World Conservation Monitoring Center. Our approach to global park planning is based on a global model, Plan Earth, developed by Parks of the World with different criteria than that being used by the United Nations and World Conservation Monitoring Center. Our model identifies natural resources humankind needs for a sustainable global environment within the framework of an international park system. It identifies environmentally sensitive areas around the world that need to be preserved or can be improved for their future generations. The United Nations and the World Conservation Monitoring Center primarily rely on information provided by member nations of the UN and view the earth as parks and reserves in countries rather than how we view the earth as "a Park with Countries in It". Borders and boundaries are not visable to endangered species or sensitive flora, fauna, or in most cases, the human existence. Therefore, we believe, an international park system should first be based on biodiversity of sensitive environments and sustainable uses of adjacent environments with reasonable connective corridors that enhance the richness of a site or park. Environmental planning should be based on our best knowledge of planet Earth and not on geopolitical boundaries.
We will show countries how to share the burden for a sustainable planet. We will provide guidance, consultation, and forums with super-developed, developed, and underdeveloped countries on ways they can assist each other in building a sustainable global environment. We are exploring ideas such as one country sponsoring another country's parks through Parks of the World. Another approach is Parks of the World directly funding the planning, design, and management of world parks and reserves through private, corporate, and possible donations by governments to Parks of the World. Parks of the World will select areas of the globe that have the most critical needs and will provide this information on our Internet site for people to examine and think about. We will call this section of our Internet site DANGER ZONES.
We plan to continue developing site-specific plans for parks and park systems. A team of professionals accompanied by supporters of Parks of the World will assist in the development of a park or park system or park system. This approach allows nonprofessionals to learn from professionals in an outdoor laboratory. We will develop television programs for each park or park system we plan, design, or develop. We will also visit and develop programs on exiting land and water resources that are good examples of parks that help sustain planet earth. We plan to sell these programs to television stations and to donate them to universities with park planning and design programs.
