Highlights for Friday, 4 October 2013
The tenth World Wilderness Congress (WILD10) opened in Salamanca, Spain on Friday, 4 October 2013, with the theme “Make the World a Wilder Place.”

Held every 2-3 years, World Wilderness Congresses aim to develop innovative, intergenerational, practical solutions to meet the challenges of wilderness conservation. This collaborative conservation project brings together conservation groups, scientists, governments, community representatives, the private sector, artists, and other stakeholders to address conservation issues while recognizing the importance of culture, policy, science and resource management.

Preceded by the Intergovernmental Forum on Wilderness (2-3 October 2013), WILD10 consists of two main sessions. The Global Gathering (4-6 October 2013) is convening plenary sessions on solution-oriented approaches to conservation issues. The Global Forum (8-10 October 2013) will consist of concurrent meetings, workshops, symposia, capacity building activities and cultural events. WILD10 also includes an expo tent featuring institutional, educational, artistic and commercial exhibits.
