Wilderness Foundation UK
Dedicated to preserving the last of the world’s wild places, the Wilderness Foundation UK nurtures understanding of the value of wilderness to the health of the individual, society and the planet. For over 30 years, WFUK has been connecting people with wild places through its pioneering programme of initiatives, including wilderness trails and social projects in Europe and Africa. Every year, we help individuals and groups experience the irreplaceable quality of wilderness as a positive force for social and environmental sustainability. They benefit from nature’s significant contribution to the discovery of identity, perspective as well as leadership training and development. In addition to the trails and social projects, WFUK continues to research the positive impact of wilderness working in partnership to create an international network for wilderness advocacy and protection. Here are just some of the highlights of the Foundation’s activity: Education and Leadership Direct experience of nature rekindles deep connections with the natural world inspiring incredible journeys of self development. WFUK’s personalised wilderness trails transform lives from school and community groups to corporate and political leaders. Health and Wellbeing, Peace and Reconciliation The wilderness experience is a powerful tool for social and individual change. WFUK works with vulnerable young people, victims of conflict and communities facing health and social challenges across Europe and Africa. We cross religious and political divides and bring people together in wilderness where a sense of nature, common humanity, understanding and existence come to the fore. Wilderness Therapy Wilderness Therapy is a positive experience where individuals develop through their contact with nature and adventure. A range of experiential therapeutic programmes take place in natural, wild, or remote outdoor settings.

Mountain Biking Across Mongolia!

Thomas Allen,

My page:

Between May and August 2010 we will ride off-road across the breadth of Outer Mongolia, carrying all of our supplies with us on our bikes. We'll be spending at least two months in the wilderness, with no roads or facilities, cycling more than a thousand miles on dirt tracks in order to reach the finish line at the Russian border!

We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.

Please follow us through our website!

Tom & Andy
