The European Wilderness Exchange Programme is offering all managers and senior personnel of all European Wilderness Network members the opportunity to exchange information and knowledge on the stewardship issues of Wilderness. During the week long exchange, applicants will travel to selected members of the European Wilderness Network and meet with the staff, engage in workshops and visit the Wilderness in person to see in person the similarities and differences of the different Wilderness stewardship approaches.
The European Wilderness Society takes care of the local costs including local transportation and accommodation for predominantly Eastern European Countries. Regardless of country of origin, a senior manager of the European Wilderness Society will accompany the applicant during the whole trip and serve as translator, guide and colleague.
All applicants must be physically fit and be able to hike on sometimes long and strenuous trips into the Wilderness.
