Talks

I speak in public about outdoor recreation and eco-tourism, my home regions Dolomites and Karelia, journalism and writing, creativity and international experience, etc.

I’ll gladly participate in a real event, podcast, webinar, a video column, a live broadcast, etc. on the same topics. Sometimes I organize my own meetings with readers and outdoors fans.

To this moment, I’ve talked in public 17 times in 13 places in different formats. Mostly it were lecture about my experience of traveling and living in the Dolomites, Italy, which took place in Moscow in 2019-2018.

Below by the links, there are recorded videos and audios in Russian and transcripts of some of them in English.
