    • complete all remaining sections of your template
    • we encourage you to use hand-drawings, you can upload scans or photographs of those
    • do not use any material of which you do not hold the copyright
  • if you are unsure about what is to be understood by analytical sketches please look at these good practice cases:
  • Please also read the general instructions for the working groups

Outlook on the group presentation

  • on 4th of December we will have an interactive session and we hope that all groups are able to present their cases
  • each group presentation includes all cases of that group and you need to put all information on three slides (see instructions on the template below). Ideally, each member presents one slide.
  • due to the large number of participants we will work in 4 parallel sessions, each group has ten minutes, this includes the individual cases of each group
  • we are looking for one further volunteer who would be willing to moderate one of these sessions (everything will be prepared and you will be briefed, so don't be afraid, it is an important experience and competence)
  • for your presentation you will complete a powerpoint template, this can be found here
  • because of the time restrictions the presentations needs to concentrate on the conceptual approaches to planting design you have identified in your group
  • important:you need to submit your three PPT pages on Tuesday, December 3 because we will need the time on Wednesday for preparing the parallel rooms.
  • submission: Groups 1 - 15 please their file to Anna, Groups 16 - 30 please their file to Ellen
