A support network for disabled explorers
The inclusive expeditions unit consists of disabled explorers, technicians and experienced leaders all of whom give actively support the meaningful inclusion of disabled people in expeditions.
The project has been highly successful and has seen a great increase in the number of inclusive expeditions. We invite you to take part and contribute to the development of this exciting area of expeditions.
Challenging the traditional view of expeditions
- The diversity of people undertaking fieldwork are as varied as the research themes they follow
- It is the diversity of thought and experience of the individuals that make up a research group who add value through their alternative approaches and creative solutions
- As in geography, the value of diversity is also embraced by industry - a team comprised of varied individuals, either of race, gender, disability or just individual educational and social backgrounds, can mean the difference between just delivering or generating a fantastic project
