Our objectives for 2017 and a short review of 2016

A very eventful and successful year is coming to an end. 2016 was for the European Wilderness Society a year in which we:

The New Year will begin with just as much fervour as the old ones ends.

  • In January we will assist our Partner EcoPlay in the Ukraine in an Climate Change Education and Tourist Trail project financed by the Australian Embassy to the Ukraine.

    • Königsbrücker Heide Wilderness
    • Gorgany Wilderness
    • Uholka Wilderness
    • Homul Wilderness
    • European Wilderness Quality Standard.
  • In addition in February we will mail the detailed Wilderness Audit Report from NP Kalkalpen to our 1000+ Supporters to give them an idea of what the European Wilderness Quality Standard and Audit Report entails.
  • We will also publish our Annual Report 2016 and the next issue of our European Wilderness Journal.
  • In March we will start with our Areas of Inspiration in cooperation with Machaon Foundation.
