Alongside a number of talks from students and staff at KES, the society also attended a number of different evening lectures along the south coast. In Bournemouth, students experienced a night of geopolitics, and learnt about the possible future for the Arctic Ocean. At Turner Sims, members listened to the wise words of Tim Marshall, as he discussed the geography behind the walls which are springing up around the world. The society also welcomed back the explorer, Charlie Walker, as he discussed several of his past and future trips. In September, a large group of students attended a presentation by Simon Reeve about his travels around the world. These talks have all helped students to see the impact of geography outside of the classroom.
