Learn to Become a Rewilding Entrepreneur in Abruzzo


If you are a fan of Isabella Tree  and would love to follow suit in creating a successful rewilding business do have a look at Rewilding Apennines’ dynamic  October seminar on the rewilding economy.  It takes place between 1st-4th of October 2020, and is set in the stunning mountain town of Pettorano sul Gizio (AQ), home of the first Abruzzo Bear Smart Community that was created in 2015 and 45% of the profits from this dynamic learning experience will be re-invested in the conservation of Abruzzo’s endangered Marsican Bears.

Nature Based Economies

The goal is to raise awareness of rewilding practices as an alternative to the current mainstream economic philosophy and to inspire a new generation of entrepreneurs.

A New & Inspiring Opportunity to Grow a Nature-Based Business

All participants will be involved in an interactive 4-days programme with talks, presentations, interviews, nature-based activities and workshops. You will learn about mixed farming practices, sustainable architecture and eco-design, environmental philosophy, ethnobotany, responsible tourism and of course  learn what rewilding means in shaping the Central Apennines economy.

Why a Rewilding Economy?

  • Rewilding allows our eco-systems chance to recover and resilient to impacts of climate change
  • Rewilding restores keystone species & accelerates their beneficial impact on the food chain
  • Rewilding harnesses nature as an ally  in solving modern socio-economic issues
  • Rewilding revitalises rural and urban communities allowing a fair living from nature based enterprises
  • Rewilding promotes health and well-being and builds a shared sense of humanity and pride
  • Rewilding  reduces costs by allowing nature to self-regulate sustainably


Who is the Seminar Aimed at

Local entrepreneurs (who can understand Italian) and are  either willing to invest in a rewilding project in Abruzzo or who already run  local business (in the field of food/farming/hospitality/tourism/craftsmanship) and  are looking to integrate the rewilding philosophy.
