Talking at the RGS Microlectures


Absolutely over the moon to announce that I’ve been chosen to talk at the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) Microlectures event taking place this March 🙂

It’s such an incredible honour to be able to talk on the stage at the RGS. As well as sharing the stage with 5 incredible adventurers, including Val Ismaili

Geographical journeys: microlectures

 Thursday 15 March at 7.00pm (doors open at 6.00pm)

We are excited to announce our speaker line-up for the 2018 Microlectures!

Join us for an action packed evening of adventure and discovery from the next generation of speakers. Six adventurers will have just 10 minutes to share their inspiring journeys in an illustrated short talk with a geographical theme.

Charlie Knight
The Long Way Up: Mexico to Canada on the Pacific Crest Trail
Faced with doubts and depression, Charlie took the ‘black dog’ for a walk through America.

Emma de Heveningham
Himalayan Popup Picturehouse: the highest cinema in the world
With a cinema in her pack, Emma travels to remote communities in the mountains, sharing stories at nomadic camps and monasteries.

Chaz Powell
The Wildest Journey: walking the Zambezi
Undeterred by local conflict and brutal terrain, Chaz’s source to sea walk along the wildest river was far from easy.

Elspeth Luke
Running Scotland’s Watershed, a ribbon of wildness
The first woman to complete this journey, Elspeth ran the spine of Scotland, surrounded by bogs, rain and beauty.

Hattie Field
The Ger in the City: exploring migration in Mongolia
The steppe is changing and rural nomads are moving to the cities. Hattie spent two months finding out why.

Val Ismaili
Seeking Solitude, Finding Solidarity: on foot through the Caucasus
Val’s solo through-hike of the Transcaucasian Trail turned into an unexpectedly emotional journey, featuring lone shepherds, hospitable families, and homemade vodka.

The evening is hosted by anthropologist and broadcaster Mary-Ann Ochota and organised by the Society’s Younger Members’ Committee
