Abstract: Up to date, most of the swampland conjectures are best motivated by scans of corners of the string theory landscape. One expects, however, that they encode fundamental consistency requirements for low energy theories to be embeddable in quantum theories of gravity. This is crucial in establishing the generality of the swampland program and its phenomenological impact. I will describe some approaches to motivating swampland conjectures, in particular the WGC, from considerations of black holes and gravitational instantons/wormholes, as well as their limitations
