Welcome to the Global Forum!  We are so pleased to bring your delegates a very broad range of sessions, rich in content and designed to deepen your knowledge and grow your practical skills to enable you to Make the World a Wilder Place.  Specific outcomes include:  established functional long-term networks with collaborative missions; tools for scientific discovery and advancement; new policy recommendations; and adoption of customizable models to address conservation threats all over the world.

In our undertaking to determine “what nature needs” – the Planet – we take into account the realities of human development and needs of People and their quest for Prosperity.  So pack your energy, enthusiasm, creativity and commitment – we will depart the Global Forum with a positive shift in efficacy – to understand, embark on and lead a lasting social movement that halts wild nature decline, returns wildness to disturbed natural areas, and protects and regenerates ecosystems to give species a chance to survive or rebuild.

We have 18 exciting program areas – and a menu of 125 different sessions – across three tightly scheduled days.  Take advantage of the way these programs are organized thematically.  Be sure to consider sessions outside of your normal area of work.  We’ve got photographers and filmmakers interacting with scientists and conservationists to bring you frontline stories and strategies vividly portrayed on screen.  Over 39 distinct Indigenous nations and communities will be represented among the WILD10 delegates, integrated as presenters and participants across many programs.  Youth also have unparalleled access and visibility.

Thus we must now thank you – for your preparations, for getting to Salamanca, and your contribution to Making the World a Wilder Place!

 Manager of the WILD10 Global Forum

HOW TO USE THIS PROGRAM….PLEASE READ!

Here’s how the Global Forum hand program is organized. 

1. We list programs first in the Global Forum Overview, citing a goal and the program coordinators for each.  Then we list the sessions in that program, which are coded by program and a roman numeral in the series.
2. Note that the Science & Stewardship Symposium has a different way of coding, by alphabetical letter and number, due to the volume in that series.
3. Certain sessions will have two codes, divided by a slash – this is where presenters merge from two (or more) programs to bring you integrated content.
4. Next, you find the Global Forum Schedule of Programs – the simply chronological listing.  Codes and titles are indicated for every session so you can identify each as part of a program(s).
5. Note that we have assigned session codes of A, B, C, and D to most sessions.  Please think in terms of session times and check the time key on each page for session start and end times coded this way.

A Session = 9:30-11:10 AM [09.30hrs– 11.10hrs]
B Session = 11:30 AM – 1:10 PM [11.30hrs – 13.10hrs]
C Session = 3:00 PM – 4:30 PM [15.00hrs – 16.30hrs]
D Session = 5:00 PM – 6:30 PM [17.00hrs – 18.30hrs]

6. Certain sessions are specially scheduled and start/end at times different from our A-D lettering.  We indicate such times when relevant.
7. Room numbers have been assigned to maximize both efficiency and circulation.  Note the following locations:

    • Auditorio, Sala Menor, all of the Aula rooms, and the Music Room are in the Hospederia building
    • Salon de Pinturas is in the Colegio de Fonseca, the building adjoining Hospederia
    • All of WiLDspeak (including the WILD Water crossover day) is in the Juan del Enzina Theater
    • The CoalitionWILD Lounge (available all A-D sessions) is in the Palacio
    • All of Big for Trees for Life is in the Abba Fonseca Hotel

Nature Strategy for Sustainability

Program Coordinators – Julie Anton Randall, Julie@wild.org and Austin Perez, Austin.perez@wild.org

WILD10 Program Goal – Establish a global network committed to generating international guidelines, replicable models, and tools for development practices that protect wild nature while meeting basic needs of human health and prosperity.  Apply the principles of Nature Needs Half™ (HALF) – an aspirational and practical vision of sustainability based on the scientific consensus that keeping at least half of wild nature intact and interconnected is vital to ensuring continued life-supporting services to humankind.  HALF can be composed of interconnected large land and seascapes, or a connected mosaic of wild nature found in parks, forests, refuges, working lands, and waters utilized and managed with nature conservation as a primary value.  Prioritize the protection of nature for its fundamental role in:  Alleviated human suffering – nutrition, drinking water, shelter and sanitation enabled through nature-conserving food, fiber and energy production and water management; Enhanced human security – mitigating resource scarcity and human conflict by recognizing that productive human societies are tied directly to ecosystem health and stability; and Nature valued in the economy – socioeconomic valuation of environmental services, conservation-related job skills and livelihoods, accounting for renewable resource degradation and depletion in national capital asset accounts, and markets for carbon, water and biodiversity.

Social Benefits Forum (SBF) Presentation Series

Throughout workshops with Social Benefits Forum presentations (see Nature Strategy for Sustainability and WILD Cities workshops denoted as Social Benefits Forum in the program, aim to establish a coordinated approach to highlight and demonstrate :

  • The value of Social Benefits savings and economic advantage of this work  to both Governments and NGOs
  • The relationship that measuring Social Benefits has on evidencing the critical need for a global Nature Needs Half agenda
  • Demonstrating how The Social Benefits Forum outcomes can be used as a critical tool in the lobbying and influencing of decision takers in relation to the conservation and protection ofWildLandand Wilderness globally.

To achieve this, through Social Benefits Forum activities at WILD10 the aim is to:

  • Create an ongoing Social Benefits Forum of signed up members who will share information on a global scale,
  • Commit to create a joint agenda and process for publicity of information to influence conservation on a global scale.
  • Agree and develop a protocol for understanding ‘what we mean by social benefits’, and what parameters will work within.
  • Establish a secretariat to continue the work post Wild 10, and we liaise with members on an ongoing basis

WILD Cities

Program Coordinators – Vance Martin, Austin Perez (Austin.Perez@wild.org), and Ulrich Stocker (stoecker@duh.de)

WILD10 Goal = WILD Cities™ will create a global network of cities, involving diverse professions and intercultural and intergenerational perspectives, which are committed to the principles of Nature Needs Half™.  This working body, facilitated by WILD, will formulate common criteria defining a WILD Cities™ and international guidelines for city planning.  It will be capable of generating and sharing replicable models and methodologies, policies, and investments that ensure a place for wild nature while meeting the needs of urban dwellers.  It will demonstrate citizen involvement and buy-in to render WILD City™ measures plausible in policymaking and budget allocations. WILD Cities™ aims to achieve: (1) continued and expanded ecosystem services to urban areas; (2) quantity and quality wildlife habitat and biodiversity within cities and the watershed; (3) enticing opportunities for recreation, and health and economic benefits from open and green spaces in the city confines and beyond; (4) educational opportunities; and (5) revenue generation (jobs, property values, tourism income) and public cost savings (avoiding environmental remediation and storm recovery) for cities.
