Featured WILD10 Ambassador

 

Vicente del Bosque: Coach, Spanish National Soccer Team

 

"It has been a great honor for me to help bring Spain to world recognition in soccer. But we also need to be world-class in our relationship with Nature, to create a better future for our children in which the natural environment that provides health, economic prosperity and beautiful landscapes is assured. WILD10 will help make this new relationship with Nature a reality. Join me and others in the WILD10 process!"

Young People Making the World a Wilder Place 

   

 

A partnership between The WILD Foundation, The Murie Center and Simon Jackson, founder of the Spirit Bear Youth Coalition, CoalitionWILD seeks to catalyze a social movement of people under 30 to create a wilder world. The initiative inspires and empowers young people by providing a social media platform for innovative ideas, on-the-ground projects, activities and events, while focusing attention on the power of younger generations to initiate change.  On April 17, CoalitionWILD is launching an international challenge to get more people involved in making the world a wilder place in the months leading up to the 10th World Wilderness Congress (WILD10) in Salamanca Spain in October 2013. Visit www.coalitionwild.org to learn more and get involved!

 

Join us for the launch of CoalitionWILD in Spain and take part in WILD10. If you can't join us in person, catch the Congress on-line through WILD10 EnVivo. Meet other change-making CoalitionWILD members from around the world in Spain and take advantage of every opportunity to develop your personal and professional leadership skills.

Submit your nature spottings!

 

WILD10 is thrilled to announce this global partnership with Project NOAH, an online identification platform for wild nature!

We encourage all WILD10 delegates and followers to participate in the world's fastest growing web platform (Project Noah) by joining Mission WILD! Submit your spottings of organisms located in wilderness areas throughout the world to our mission, and we'll feature one spotting a week on our Facebook page
 
These organisms can be located in the land, water, or flying high in the sky. Try your best to identify what you find, but don't hesitate to ask for help on your unknown spottings. Interact with this incredible online community and urge your friends to get on board!
