Event Details

The objective of all Wilderness areas in the European Wilderness Network is to shift from Wilderness management to Wilderness stewardship. Wilderness stewardship planning is a holistic, long-term approach to Wilderness management. Here Wilderness stewards first determine whether there is the need for any management action before implementing an action plan. The essence of Wilderness stewardship is non-intervention management. For Wilderness stewards and protected area managers this means deciding to keep their hands off in order to enable nature and its dynamic processes to happen and evolve freely and undisturbed.

This webinar will introduce the framework of Wilderness stewardship planning, the template and the process of developing and implementing a wilderness stewardship plan.
