Mission Explore was featured in The Guardian G2 kids section yesterday, 5 August under the headline How to be an Explorer. And they are asking any of you kids out there to send photos in from your adventures to email@example.com – so get out there and show them what guerilla geography is all about.
The wonderfully inventive and incorrigibly curious crew at The Geography Collective have launched a new blog to track stories in the media about risk aversion. Our recently published book: Mission:Explore, written by The Geography Collective and illustrated by Tom Morgan-Jones is the purest antidote known to man*(kind) and beast for the cotton wool culture that our children are being enveloped in.
Do please go and take a look at their blog: http://thegeographycollective.wordpress.com/ as well as the book, and please tell your friends.
* for man please also read woman, boy, girl, child, etc. etc
Alastair Humphreys, author of Moods of Future Joys and Thunder and Sunshine, is embarking on a new expedition. SOUTH will be the longest unsupported polar journey in history, with Alastair and his friend Ben Saunders making the first return journey to the South pole on foot. This pdf brochure summarises the project. This extraordinary and inspirational pair have been training for over four years in order to be able to face the extreme conditions they will have to survive. Alastair’s blog goes into more detail about this incredible challenge, and you can find out more about Ben Saunders, youngest person to ski solo to the North Pole and British record holder for the longest Arctic journey, on his blog.
