Wildestan Expedition | 3pm, 26th-30th October

Alongside our weekly adventures, we're running an online five-day Wildestan Expedition, taking you through preparation, execution and recording of your expedition experiences. Like all Wildestan adventures, there will be interactive activities, discussions and a chance for you to ask questions of our industry leading expedition leaders as they broadcast to you live from the wilderness where they stand.

Leading when the temperature drops | 5pm, 20th October

In this adventure, leadership expert Nigel Painter will help you to think about different kinds of leadership and consider what sort of leader you are. You will then work through an emergency scenario with Nigel, deciding as a group how you might best support a casualty suffering with the effects of the cold.

Past and Present | 5pm, 13th October

For returning Wildestanians only. As pioneers on our first explorations into Wildestan, we’ll be inviting you to reflect on the programme so far and ask for your help in planning our future journeys through this undiscovered country. Our following adventures will be open to everyone, including new Wildestan Explorers.
