A lonely planet: What’s the future for global travel, in a post pandemic society?
An online webinar to explore the future of travel post COVID-19 with special guest, Founder of Lonely Planet Publications and Warwick alumnus, Tony Wheeler (BSc Engineering 1965-1969).

The COVID-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on global movement. Following almost a year of restrictions, quarantine periods, changing travel corridors and border closures, travel for business and leisure remains extremely limited. Comprising over 247,000 alumni located in 167 countries worldwide, Warwick’s global alumni community has a significant interest in exploring how the industry might recover.

In this webinar we will be joined live from Melbourne by Warwick alumnus and founder of Lonely Planet Publications, Tony Wheeler, to discuss his views and explore what the future of travel might look like in a post pandemic society.

Interviewing Tony will be Professor Noel McCarthy of the Warwick Institute for Global Pandemic Planning (IGPP), and Professor of Communicable Disease Epidemiology and Control, Warwick Medical School.

Tony and Noel will discuss these topics, and answer questions submitted by our global alumni community, including how consumers travel behaviour may change and how academic research from the IGPP can support the recovery.

Warwick Women’s Professional Network presents Antarctic Fire Angels: Ordinary Women Doing Extraordinary Things
On line

Resilience, Leadership and Team Work

The Warwick Women's Professional Network is thrilled to welcome the Antarctic Fire Angels who will speak at this virtual event about their professional roles in the Fire and Rescue Service and their training for the challenge of their Antarctic expedition: skiing coast-to-coast in November 2023, covering 1,900 Km, pulling 85 Kg pulks (supply sleds) in temperatures as low as -50’, in wind speeds of over 60mph over approximately 70 days. That’s around 27 Km every day.

 They will attempt to attain a World Record as the team would be the first all-female emergency services team to achieve this whilst eradicating gender stereotypes and increasing awareness of the impact of poor mental health, conquering this route using mind and muscle power.

Please join us and WBS academic Maja Korica in welcoming the Angels to Warwick.
