    Two days before the 8th World Wilderness Congress began in Alaska, nearly 200 government wildlands managers from 17 countries met to share ideas about common challenges and to explore ways to improve wildland stewardship globally. The goal for this Global Wilderness Seminar for Government Agencies was to lay the foundation for an operating peer network of government professionals committed to fostering best management practices in wilderness and other wildlands. The seminar, hosted by the Wilderness Policy Council (the group of U.S. federal government policy level representatives from the wilderness management and research agencies) was designed to encourage discussion among the participants with a oneday field trip, presentations from a diversity of countries over a range of topics, and small-group discussions aimed at developing ways to improve global communication about wildland stewardship.
