Explore South West is a one day seminar for anyone planning expeditions and field research overseas, with a focus on self-led student projects.
This is an event in the beautiful city of Exeter for adventurous people attracted to the work of the Society. World-leading geographers and scientists will be joined by explorers and figures from culture in a busy programme of talks, workshops, and socialising. Explore South West is an opportunity to hear tales from scientists who are delivering field-research that makes a difference to the world we live in. It’s unmissable for inspiration, advice and contacts whether you’re a student, having a career break, or just curious about adventure and responsible travel and wondering how to take that first step. With practical sessions on planning fieldwork, communicating findings, and engagement, the event is vital for people of all backgrounds considering leading their own expeditions. There is a challenging examination of issues surrounding the very nature of ‘exploration’, alongside thought-provoking reflections from artists and others.
