Wild pedagogies rest on two premises. First, human relationships with Earth are not sustainable, and second, education is a necessary partner in any transformational project of the scale required to address the first premise. It will not be enough to simply reform existing educational institutions, it is suggested that they must be re-wilded. This chapter takes a critical look at some ways that human relationships with Earth have been framed through the idea of wilderness. It also considers how the concept of wilderness, and wildness, might be re-negotiated in the Anthropocene.
