On the 22nd May, at Imperial College, London, the Scientific Explorers Society (SES) will hold their Annual Awards to champion ‘Pioneers with Purpose’. Awards will be presented to six rising stars within the world of exploration, to encourage and support them to continue their quest to discover, conserve and inspire.
The evening will also recognise the incredible achievements of Emily Penn, Oceans Advocate, Skipper and Artist; Vanessa O’Brien, Mountain Climber, Explorer and Speaker; and Mark Beaumont, Athlete, Broadcaster and Ambassador. All three will be presented with Honorary SES Awards. Now if those triads of achievements aren’t enough to impress you, try a quick internet search of these Goliaths of discovery, and you shall be rewarded with a lifetime’s worth of inspiration.
