Whether you’re a student planning your field research, thinking about taking a career break, or just curious about responsible travel and wondering how to take the first step, Explore South West is unmissable for advice, inspiration and contacts to help you on your way.
Explore South West kicks off on Friday 8 February with an evening panel discussion examining whether there’s anything left to explore. Chaired by BBC Radio 4 journalist and presenter, Ritula Shah, the panellists will discuss why the need to explore has never been more urgent and relevant, and how they are contributing to a greater understanding of our planet through their discoveries. The discussion will be followed with a performance by Mercury Prize nominated folk singer and naturalist, Sam Lee.
‘Is there anything left to explore in the 21st century?’ starts at 7.15pm on 8 February 2019. Book your place now.
