Event description

Description

Our final speaker at the ever-popular SES@GauchoCity series of talks in 2018 is a true Pioneer with Purpose, and winner of the SES Inspirational Explorer Award in 2017 ahead of his pioneering Sandukui Pinnacle Expedition to Borneo. Martin leads an attempt to film the first free ascent of an iconic, isolated, and remote 250m limestone pinnacle in Central Kalimantan while biodiversity and social scientists study the surrounding area. Led by an almost entirely Indonesian team, filmed for an Indonesian audience, this expedition will/would be the most challenging, exciting, and ambitious of his career.

Since founding the Heart of Borneo Project in 2010 as the legacy of the award-winning Murung Raya Expedition, Martin has been working at the frontiers of rainforest conservation in Kalimantan (Indonesian Borneo), with a special interest in the power of expeditions to inspire and empower people while gathering vital conservation data and media. Since that first expedition, Martin has developed his approach to be much more focused on delivering outputs that are relevant first and foremost to the host country. Using his latest expedition as an example, this approach will be the focus of his talk.
