Implementing a WILD Dream

This is the presentation which I delivered in Salamanca during the 10th World WILDERNESS Congress (aka WILD10) on 4 October 2013. I deliberately used little text, because I was trying to a) tell stories and b) engaging the audience with my 99 luftballon idea (the presentation should soon be available in video format)
I was basically arguing for the followings:
- Europe still got wilderness
- 1 million hectares of the most precious wilderness areas are included in the PAN Parks' European Wilderness Preservation System
- we simply need more wilderness than the current 1%
and finally I called the audience to join us to fight for 5% wilderness cover in Europe
