The Centre for Peace & Global Studies invites you to attend Let Your Life Speak to hear this month's guest speaker, Ben Heason. Ben was born and grew up in Snowdonia, North Wales. Both his parents climbed in the 60s, and he inherited their passion for adventurous travel – usually on a shoestring budget – to remote and challenging parts of the world. By age 13 he had climbed the highest mountains in Morocco, Greece and Thailand, and he was a member of the Cliff Rescue Service for two years while studying at UWC Atlantic College.
One of the UK’s leading climbers, Ben has been climbing full-time for about 20 years. In 2005 Ben was part of an international expedition to climb the world’s highest waterfall, deep in the heart of the Venezuelan jungle. The team's successful expedition, with climbing at the highest level in an incredibly remote region of the planet, has been praised as 'one of the finest achievements by British rock climbers on foreign soil'.
Not only have the physical and mental aspects of climbing been important to Ben, but equally engrossing have been the wonderfully diverse and often unique cultures he has been privileged to experience in his life.
We look forward to you joining us for Ben's inspiring talk.
