Royal Geographic Society Explore

The Royal Geographical Society was looking to hold its annual field research event outside of London for the first time, so we were thrilled to deliver it for them in Exeter.

Explore was a one day conference for those planning expeditions and field research overseas. Geographers and scientists enjoyed a busy programme of talks, workshops, and socialising. With practical sessions on planning fieldwork, communicating findings, and engagement, the event was for people of all backgrounds who were considering leading their own field research.

In a climate of decolonisation, we also held a public event that reframed the sometimes difficult concept of ‘exploration’ in a contemporary and inclusive context.
