Do you yearn for adventure? Do you enjoy discovering hidden corners of the globe and enjoy spending time immersed in nature? Then you will love the British Exploring Society. It is an amazing organisation that takes young people to extraordinary destinations, both in terms of the places they visit and also in their own lives.

To find out more we're talking to their CEO, Honor Wilson Fletcher MBE. Honor has led the BES for four years, having previously worked to establish 12 state schools in some of the most deprived parts of England. And this is where she had a first opportunity to take part in and see the positive impact of challenging overseas adventures with young people.

In this fascinating discussion, we talk about why exploring matters and the impact that adventures can have on people's lives. We also discover what it takes to run an organisation like the BES and where Honor wants to take it next. It's a wide ranging chat about the importance and the impact of nature on our lives.
