    Goals / Remit

    Wild Europe was formally launched in 2009 at an EC Presidency conference in Prague. We became a Foundation in 2022, registered as a Stichting under Dutch law.
    Our objectives, which are focused mainly on 2 habitat types, wetlands and forests in Europe, are the following
    - promote the protection, restoration and extension and linkage of large natural ecosystems in Europe, according to principles of non-intervention, with management by natural process
    - develop & support initiatives for this work, in liaison with a broadly based trans-European network of organisations & individuals having similar objectives
    - support a range of wilderness area models for non-intervention, to be protected in perpetuity
    - promote the multiple values of wilderness and wild areas in support of these objectives, through advocacy and other forms of representation
    - encourage initiatives that seek to uphold Europe’s positive influence in protecting wilderness areas elsewhere in the world

    Main EU files targeted

    EU Biodiversity Strategy, EU Forest Strategy, EU Restoration Law: general inputs, including participation in the EC Working Group on Forests and Nature
    Common Agricultural Policy: proposals for resource reallocation, input of a socio-economic support programme and establishment of consolidated Ecological Focus Areas

    Communication activities

    We organised a series of events in relation to the above mentioned policies.
    Our first conference was organised during the Czech EU Presidency in Prague in 2009. Following this we had a conference in 2010 in Brussels which provided the framework to launching the Rewilding Europe initiative.
    Our most recent events included the followings:
    Conference in Bratislava in November 2019 co-hosted by President Caputova. The theme of the conference was the wilderness and old-growth forests (further information at https://www.wildeurope.org/a-landmark-for-conservation/)
    Online webinar about teh protection of intact, primary forests in cooperation with the IntAct network covering the theme of preparing forest arguments for the CBD COP15 (further information at https://www.wildeurope.org/international-conference-for-primary-old-growth-forest/)
