We are excited to announce this year’s line-up for Geographical journeys: microlectures, which is again hosted by anthropologist and broadcaster Mary-Ann Ochota. Join us for an evening of inspiration and entertainment as six new generation speakers have just 10 minutes each to share their geographical journeys in an illustrated talk.
Alice Bromage discusses her travels to South Africa where she worked with the first female anti-poaching unit tackling wildlife crime. Daniel Wynn goes in search of a castaway experience in an archipelago of 99 islands in Malaysia. Tom Marsden talks about how a trip to the eastern Mediterranean became a journey into action in the face of the ongoing refugee crisis. James Price discusses his journey by foot and canoe along a remote stretch of the Colombian Pacific coastline to discover why the rainforest and its inhabitants are at risk. Taylor Butler-Eldridge outlines the value of exploring on your doorstep first in our struggle to tackle one of today’s biggest challenges – microplastics. And finally, EmmaLucy Cole charts her experiences of living with the tribes of the Sinai.
To hear more about these inspiring journeys come along to Geographical journeys: microlectures at the Society at 7.00pm on 14 March. Book your tickets now.
