"Through the Native Lands & Wilderness Council at the World Wilderness Congress, we help indigenous land managers meet and share their heart, story and information with one another. Brilliant, brave, and creative people are doing remarkable things, often with little resources. I am greatly blessed to have met such people and heard their stories."

Indigenous & Community Lands & Seas Forum

 

"The orientation of Indigenous stewardship is a process that sustains community, culture and place; with the interconnection of all life as the guiding principle, caring for place and people, land and culture become inseparable."

 

At WILD10, we will feature Indigenous and Community leaders, narratives, lifeways and conservation approaches through the Indigenous & Community Lands & Seas Forum, through plenary presentations, workshops, roundtable discussions and other media.

The Forum is designed to foster alliances between Indigenous Peoples and communities, allied organizations and nontraditional partners while promoting and facilitating intercultural, international dialogue on the advancement of a broad and inclusive vision for the future of conservation. This involves cooperation between many groups, including Indigenous Peoples, communities, industry, government, students, artists, activists and more. Long-term goals include increased leadership, inclusion and influence of Indigenous Peoples-and their worldviews-on wild nature conservation agendas, goals and outcomes.

GeoStory: Make the World a Wilder Place

 

WILD10 Delegates: Tell the story of your WILD place! To participate in this GeoStory, click here.  
 
Europe is becoming a wilder place, and that's why WILD10 will convene there. Even on the world's most densely populated continent, wild nature & human society can have a new relationship. This idea of a new, wilder, reborn Europe can create a true feeling of European identity and it can start a new global movement for nature and wilderness.

We are very excited to launch our first WILD10 GeoStory! The locations in this GeoStory are just a few examples of the many wild places found throughout the world. We'll be updating this with new wild locations- be sure to check back and see!
