Have you ever wondered what is Wilderness, does it still exists in Europe and what does it take to protect it? While there is a common European Wilderness Definition in place, many Europeans might not have a clear idea what Wilderness really means and what characterises Wilderness. In several languages, the word Wilderness has a negative connotation and is perceived as ‘chaotic’ or ‘messy’. On the other hand, Wilderness can be seen as a place where people do not intervene with nature, benefiting natural processes and developments. Therefore, Wilderness in Europe, its definition, certification and stewardship raise numerous questions.  
In course of this webinar, you will learn all about European Wilderness, directly from the European Wilderness Society.
 
The European Wilderness Society is the only Pan-European, Wilderness and environmental advocacy organisation whose mission is to identify, designate, steward and promote Europe’s remaining Wilderness, WILDCoasts, WILDForests, WILDIslands and WILDRivers through the European Wilderness Network.
 
Lecturer: Max Rossberg, Chairman of the European Wilderness Society (https://wilderness-society.org/).

The webinar is carried out within the project "Future Environmentalists - Linking EU Natural Capital Management to Field Research". The project is supported by the Erasmus+ Program of the European Commission, Key Action 2: Strategic Partnership by means of Activity Agreement № CSP 2018-1-BG01-KA203-047962
