Open call for speakers at the next International Wilderness Week!

Conservation campaigners! Ecology experts! Wilderness and Wildlife advocates! Whether your project is local or international, from the East to West, North or South, we want to showcase your work in our next International Wilderness Week to inspire others though your presentations in our virtual conference from the 24th to 28th of January 2022.

Last year, despite the lockdown, the first edition of the International Wilderness Week re-connected 30,000 people to the natural world outside. With the involvement of like-minded advocates, it helped inspire hope and further action on nature’s behalf, especially now when we have been so strongly reminded just how important the outdoors are to our well-being. This year we will go even further.

During the five days, Wilderness advocates from around the world will celebrate Wilderness and nature in general with online presentations, discussions, workshops, live excursions, reports from community events, Q&As, join-in-activities and much more! The virtual setup allows us to address and involve all time zones and regions. Providing easy access for everyone.

This year we will explore the wonders of some of the most iconic habitats on earth. Starting with the mysteries of our oceans and some of the habitats highly influenced by them such as coasts, wetlands and mangroves. We will then explore the wonders of some of the most precious and threatened forests and mountains. From there we will move to the magnificent savannas, grasslands and deserts of our planet. To finish off, we will put the focus on humans and wilderness, discussing some of the main challenges, as well as potential solutions.

Present your work at the 2022 International Wilderness Week

The meaning and history of Wilderness is just as diverse as its appearance around the world. Unfortunately, it is disappearing globally at an alarming rate. However, we know there are people everywhere working hard and willing to help preserve these biodiverse places from their homes and the Wilderness Week is here to celebrate that by bringing them together to showcase the inspiring work these individuals are doing to protect the wildlife and places that matter to them most.

This means we need you to bring this idea to life. Present your work! Tell us your Wilderness story! Bring Wilderness into the virtual world! Show us your local wild area!

Register your interest as a presenter in the link below along with any ideas you’d like to present or contribute including any queries and we will be in touch.
