Online event with explorer John Pilkington FRSGS. An Inspiring People At Home talk from the Royal Scottish Geographical Society.

Passions are running high in the Greater Caucasus. After the Soviet Union’s break-up, Russians and Georgians started a vicious bid for control of the Georgian territory of Abkhazia. Then came the shocking terrorist attack on Beslan School. And more recently South Ossetia – also part of Georgia – has become the latest ‘frozen conflict’ in this stunningly beautiful region on the cusp of Europe and Asia.

This event will consist of a short film and presentation prepared by the speaker, followed by an interactive Q&A.
