Join us at The Hive to meet Paul Niel, a passionate explorer, mountaineer, and founder of Lhotseconsult, at our fireside chat!
His hunger for adventure has led him onto more than twenty expeditions and into more than 100 countries across the globe. Paul’s adventures, including his latest project to be the first to climb together with his wife Esther Hong Kong Island’s entire coastline to map trash pollution, has allowed him to see the impacts of the climate crisis and waste pollution on the environment first hand.
Topics we’ll cover:
• Backyard adventures and mapping Hong Kong’s coastal pollution
• Paul’s latest documentary project: The Loop (link below)
• Impactful investments
• The overlap of technology and exploration
