Belinda launched Explorers Connect, a social enterprise connecting people to adventures in 2009. It's now a community of 25,000+ open to everyone from total beginners to experienced explorers to link with adventures, team-mates and adventure industry jobs. She also runs Britain's most adventurous festival Base Camp Festival and currently she's establishing  Britain's first national day of adventure, Wild Night Out to help disadvantaged kids get outdoors. 

I’ve spent 20 years leading groups in the wilderness. I’ve seen adventure change people’s lives, as it changed mine. Now I’m on a mission to make adventure more accessible.
