This Funzing Experience:
Nature is powerful, transformative, and under threat.

Individuals and organisations fighting to protect the natural world increasingly recognise the power of storytelling: Stories about the natural world delight and educate us; help us feel connected to the planet and one another; and urge us to action.

During this live storytelling event, four professional storytellers working to conserve the environment will tell personal, never-before-shared tales from their global adventures. Travel with them to remote stretches of the world, from Mesopotamia to the North Carolina Blue Ridge Mountains, and find out what drives them in an interactive Q&A that follows their talks.

Hosted by Millie Kerr—a conservation journalist, travel writer, and wildlife photographer—alongside three dynamic female storytellers: Sarah Begum, Harriet Constable, and Annabel Illingworth. More information about each presenter may be found below.

Sarah Begum is a fellow of the Royal Geographical, Sarah Begum is an immersive investigative journalist and anthropologist/explorer with a varied storytelling repertoire. She lived with the Huaorani tribe of the Ecuadorian Amazon and produced a documentary about her experience—Amazon Souls—which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival.

Harriet Constable is an award-winning multimedia journalist and self-shooting producer/director based in London. She's explored the August 2017 Kenyan election through the eyes of a rollerblading subculture in Nairobi, tracked rhinos on foot for a story about community conservation initiatives in Northern Kenya, and investigated the deadly global demand for sand.

Annabel Illingworth is an independent creative and strategist based in London. Her skills include photography, journalism, graphic design, website creation, film production, branding and strategy. Annabel has directed/produced several short films, including several for Rwanda's Tourism and Trade & Investment boards.
