I’ve always had the feeling that nothing is impossible if one applies a certain amount of energy in the right direction. If you want to do it, you can do it.                 Nellie Bly


What’s the campaign?

This crowdfunding campaign aims to raise £2,500 to offer bursaries for up to ten young people aged 18-21 years to attend the Heritage of Women in Exploration conference. The bursaries will provide a way of giving interested young people the opportunity to share and participate in this unique event. 


What’s the event?

The Heritage of Women in Exploration is a special event, in the Centenary year of a landmark in Women’s Suffrage, organised by Women’s Adventure Expo CIC.

It’s a full-day conference held at the Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers) in London on 21st June 2018. Speakers include academics, historians, authors, modern day explorers and adventurers.

The audience will learn about pioneering women of the past, discover new characters and hear stories of their adventures. They’ll be introduced to inspirational role models past and present, like Nellie Bly, Junko Tabei, Gertrude Bell, Freya Stark, Myrtle Simpson and many more.

This event will celebrate the courage, resolve and achievements of women explorers and adventurers throughout history.

Why is it important for young people to attend?


"Adventure needs to be more accessible to those who think they are not capable. I started from zero in my mid-30s in this life of adventure and never thought I was capable of doing any of it. Having Adventure Champions, which there are so many of, encourages others to give things a go. There is a great tide of positivity sweeping over us at the moment, we just need to harness it correctly!" - Jo Bradshaw, Everest Summiteer

This crowdfunding campaign will enable us to offer the opportunity for several young people aged 18-21 years, who are interested in exploration, adventure and women's history to attend the event. Through this bursary scheme we will support up to ten individuals who would not otherwise have the chance to be part of this unique conference. 

Each bursary will cover the conference registration fee and reimbursement of reasonable travel expenses either in full or partially depending on how much is raised. Applications for bursary places will open as soon as we reach £1000 raised. With YOUR donation we can make it possible for successful applicants to participate, learn, be inspired and share their experience.
