You are warmly invited to join us as we celebrate the 5th Anniversary of the European Wilderness Society, and discuss various Wilderness related topics. This is your opportunity to shape the future of Wilderness in Europe.

Keynote

Max Rossberg, chairman of the European Wilderness Society and proud Wilderness advocate, will speak about the development of Wilderness concept in Europe, and the future of European Wilderness.

5th Anniversary Celebration

The European Wilderness Society was established in 2014 . Over the past five years the organisation has grown to create a network of 37 Wilderness areas in 17 European countries. Today its activities include the publication of a range of material, including the European Wilderness Journal, alongside projects in environmental education, herd management, and beech forests.
