The primary objective of these talks is to raise awareness of issues affecting tropical forests and their indigenous tribal inhabitants, with an emphasis on their relevance to us - climate change and global warming, human rights and cultural diversity. I have delivered talks at many levels, from primary school to university. Some examples are Claremont Fan and Chigwell schools, the Leeds University International Affairs Forum, the Naval and Military Club and Canning House in London, and the Royal Geographical Society.

The photographs and videos shown during the talks form the basis of a multimedia exhibition which has been staged at the Brazilian Embassy in London, the Memorial of Indigenous Peoples museum in Brasilia, the Caixa Cultural Gallery in Sao Paulo and the Penny Gallery in Kingston upon Thames.
