Dear Friends, Partners, fellow Wilderness-advocates,

We have been working behind the scenes and our new website is now live! We warmly invite you to join us at the Wilderness Academy 2019, which will be held 27-29 May 2019, in the UNESCO¬†Biosphere Reserve Lungau, Austria. This year brings back all our favourite parts of the previous Academy Days; the latest Wilderness topics, a big excursion, the Wilderness Film Festival, and then also a few new touches for you. We host a Gala Dinner in celebration of the European Wilderness Society’s 5th anniversary, the 10th anniversary of the European Wilderness Resolution and the 55th anniversary of the US Wilderness Act. There will be an exhibition of our WILDArt Event which took place August 2018 in Synevyr National Nature Park, Ukraine, and additional workshops in Wilderness Writing and Leave No Trace.

This is your opportunity to shape the future of Wilderness in Europe!

Registration is open, with early bird tickets available until the 31st March 2019. Deals are also available for students, one-day tickets and speakers. We’re still accepting abstract submissions for speakers, so please do get in touch here.

We look forward to welcoming you to the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Lungau next May. Let’s Get Wild!
