REZA PAKRAVAN – Africa’s Forgotten Frontiers: The Sahel

Saturday 18 January 13:15 – 13:45

On the 31st of July, Reza Pakravan, an explorer and filmmaker, became the first person in modern history to have travelled the full length of the Sahel. A belt of land stretching across the southern boundary of the Sahara desert, the Sahel spans the width of Africa, from Senegal to Somalia, and is home to some of the harshest conditions on the planet, where the effects of climate change are most felt and rebel uprisings are common.

Reza’s talk will take you on a breath-taking journey across the continent. He will share tales of his journey to the tense frontiers and the enduring traditions of the Sahel. In this high energy, adventure-packed talk, Reza reveals his challenges of travelling as the locals do.
