Conference Theme

The theme of the conference is “Revisiting What Is Wild for Coexisting.

The concept of “wild” often refers to elements of nature that remain untamed and unaltered by human intervention. Some argue that in today’s interconnected world, true wild, untouched by human influence, is exceedingly rare or perhaps even nonexistent. In this human-dominated era, in the Anthropocene, new challenges and new debates arise around what is wild as well as what is natural.

Conference Location

Córdoba is located in Andalusia, Spain, and has a rich background influenced by Roman settlements, Visigoths, and Muslim culture. During its Muslim periods, Córdoba grew in size and educational prowess, becoming the second-largest city in Europe by the 10th century. Learn more about the location.

Located in the heart of the historic center of Córdoba and directly in front of the Mosque-Cathedral, the Palacio de Congresos de Cordoba was built by architect Hernán Ruiz from 1512 to 1516. The building served as a hospital from the time it was built until 1724 and later was acquired by the Córdoba Provincial Council to ultimately turn it into a conference center in 1980.
