About this Event
We’re proud to invite our Grosvenor Council and Alexander Graham Bell Legacy Society members to join us for an exclusive Insider Call with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and National Geographic Explorer Paul Salopek. Paul will discuss the Out of Eden Walk, his multiyear, 21,000-mile odyssey retracing our ancestors’ ancient migration on foot across the globe.
His journey began in Ethiopia—our evolutionary “Eden”—in January 2013 and will end at the southern tip of South America. Paul is engaging with the major stories of our time, from climate change and technological innovation to mass migration and cultural survival. As he travels the globe at the measured pace of his footsteps, he reveals the texture of the lives of those he encounters—nomads, villagers, traders, farmers, and fishermen—people who seldom make the news. When this journey ends, he will have pieced together a global mosaic of stories, faces, sounds, and sights. The result will be an unparalleled portrait of our shared humanity.
