About the event:
The WWC is not your typical ‘conference’ – it integrates art, science, management, government, academia, native leaders, youth, corporate leaders and advocates into a multi-year conservation program, with unique results at each convening. It is the best-known and most effective global platform for debating and acting on wilderness issues. It provides a balanced approach, taking on highly charged issues in a constructive manner, and most importantly helping to facilitate solutions.
WWCs are also critical venues for education, training, networking, and information exchange across diverse groups. The goal is to build this global wilderness community through online communications in-between the physical gathering at each WWC.
The WWC is an ongoing conservation project, focused on generating hope and inspiration through achieving practical and positive outcomes in policy, new wilderness areas, new funding mechanisms, trainings for communities and professionals, and more.
