Explorer, Campaigner, Speaker
Belinda is the leading voice promoting the benefits of adventure on wellbeing and the founding campaigner of the #AdventureRevolution
"I believe adventure is a necessity of the human spirit. The modern world has become too easy, too averse to challenge and too disconnected from nature. This is having a negative effect on our physical and mental health. What we need is a revolution"
An Explorer in her own right, Belinda has walked across Nicaragua, searched for camels in China's Desert of Death, discovered ancient rock paintings in Lesotho, pioneered inclusive expeditions for people with disabilities, lead dozens of youth development expeditions around the world and gained a Guinness World Record for rowing unsupported around Britain. An expert expedition leade rand Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, Belinda has managed remote trips for, amongst others Ray Mears, Chris Ryan & Bear Grylls.
Belinda launched Explorers Connect, a non-profit organisation connecting people to adventures in 2009. Over nearly 10 years she has encouraged over 30,000 ordinary people to discover a world of outdoor challenges and established Britain's National Day of Adventure, Wild Night Out
Belinda's revolution is starting to get noticed and 2017 she was named in The Sunday Times ‘Alternative’ Rich List which celebrates 40 people in Britain who lead “extraordinary, worthwhile and satisfying lives” alongside Sir David Attenborough, Virginia McKenna & Tunde Okewale OBE
