About the University of the Wild

The University of the Wild is dedicated to educating new “ecological global citizens”, arming them with deep knowledge, experience, and thinking about the human relationship to the natural world, with deep earth-based wisdom from the past, the most up-to-date science from the present, and innovative concepts for the future.

UofWild seeks to inspire a new generation of thinkers, problem solvers, and influencers–people who will be able to shape minds and policies to re-integrate revitalize, and restore all life for a long and sustainable future.

Programs offered include events, workshops, and educational programs for the public, 1 to 4-credit courses for students of any age, and a full-semester, residential, 16-credit program for college and university students (Semester on Earth).

   “…to transfer the University of the Wild in Petersham to a ‘state-of-the-art’ eco-community is so important as we create models for sustainable living…to have colleges and universities involved in the new eco-community at Earthlands is an additional benefit as we strive to demonstrate new education models – great work!”
