This year's Annual Explore weekend will take place on 6 November and 7 November 2021.
Explore brings together a range of expedition professionals, scientists and travellers, with experience from all over the world, to help you get the most out of your project and learn from others recently returned from the field.
The emphasis is on small projects with a research component but anyone planning overseas expeditions or fieldwork is welcome. Whether you are planning your first or 21st expedition, Explore is the event for you.
Given the continued high rates of COVID-19 and uncertainty as to whether restrictions will be reintroduced, the Society has taken the difficult decision that Explore should become an online event this year. We are sure you will be as disappointed as we are, but as many were travelling long distances to be with us, we felt it was important that we made the decision now.
Much of the value of Explore is about the interactions that take place in the workshops, so we are going to run these workshops in Zoom breakout rooms (or similar) and hold networking sessions, as well as broadcasting the main talks.
You can purchase a ticket to watch the main talks online and participate in up to three online workshops.
