President’s Address 2022

By British Exploring Society,
charity update

This week Marvin Rees was due to host an in-person President’s Address event, which unfortunately has had to be postponed.

This 6-minute message from Marvin hopefully gives a taster of what we would have discussed. In it, he reflects on the profound impact that expeditions can have on shaping our individual identity, and how this can help us towards building a more inclusive idea of what Britishness can be.

We will shortly be announcing a new date for our President’s Address, which will take place in May 2023. Stay tuned for updates, and we hope you will be able to join us then.
