Developed and led by world-class experts on risk-reduction and safety, Going Places passes on the benefit of decades' experience in expedition leading and travel medicine over the course of a single day. We’ve assembled a curriculum that goes beyond the usual advice on safety and risk-avoidance; the result is a course which empowers young travellers to be independent & confident while they see the world.
The basics are comprehensively covered, but Going Places goes deeper. Once our facilitators have worked with the group on the essential knowledge that every traveller should have, the day turns its focus to the stuff that can make the travel experience truly extraordinary.
We engage with the group as individuals: we talk to them about self-awareness and address any specific personal concerns that they have. We dive into the importance of cultural sensitivity, how to live like a local - and what travellers can do to make their journeys as enriching, fulfilling, immersive and safe as possible. All without sacrificing the adventurous spirit that makes travel so magical.
