The occasion of the 50th anniversary of the U.S. Wilderness Act provides a poignant opportunity to reflect on fifty years of wilderness protection and consider its role in the 21st century century and beyond, particularly in the context of planetary urbanization, increasing resource scarcity and the "Age of the Anthropocene." The Thinking Wilderness Project provides both an international and local platform for debate, exchange, discovery, research, celebration and reflection on wilderness in multiple forms and venues both online and through live events. The project invites "Wilderness Thinkers" to explore existing and yet to be imagined experiences and definitions of wilderness. There is no limit to how many people can participate, given its online forum. “Thinkers” can be from anywhere. The only requirement is that creative works (essays, poems, songs, videos, stories, drawings, paintings, interviews etc.) relate to wilderness.
