Explore South West launches with this public panel discussion on the topic "Is there anything left to explore in the 21st century?".
“The glory-seeking adventurer of old is giving way to explorers who want to understand the planet rather than dominate it.” This is how The Economist heralded the New Age of Discovery.
Panel members will explain why the need to explore has never been more urgent and relevant, and how, in their own work they are contributing to a greater understanding of our planet through their discoveries.
Chaired by Ritula Shah, BBC Radio 4 presenter, The World Tonight. Panel members with include a social geographer, earth scientist, conservation biologist, and artist.
The discussion will be followed by a performance by folk singer and naturalist Sam Lee.
This Friday night lecture preludes a one day seminar the following day: Explore South West at Exeter University, for anyone planning expeditions and field research overseas, with a focus on self-led student projects.
