Andy Pag is the Eco-Adventurer and BBC reporter who spent two years driving around the world in an old school bus he salvaged from a scrap yard, powered by cooking oil, and turned into a home using reclaimed materials.
Andy is an engineer and award-winning investigative journalist, but his spirit of adventure led to twelve years of heading up vehicle-based expeditions to remote parts of Africa and the Sahara Desert, until he was inspired to change the elements of his life that were unsustainable, which led him to experiment with alternative ways of powering his overland journeys. Today Andy’s entertaining talks explore how each experimental eco-adventure has taken him closer to understanding exactly what sustainability really means and ever more clues on how to achieve it.
Andy’s talks are supported by wonderful images from his travels and film footage where appropriate. He has a wide range of adventures and experiences to draw upon when tailoring his talks – from being shot at by Senegalese bandits to being presented with Ferrero Roche by the British Ambassador in Athens. Andy’s journeys to Timbuktu, Greece and around the world were covered extensively by the global media including BBC, ITV, Sky News, CBS, Reuters, The Telegraph, and Paris Metro.
Andy is available for Inspirational Keynotes, After Dinner or Lunch events, Awards Evenings and Educational Talks on his experience of searching for sustainable ways to travel. An experienced TV and radio journalist, Andy is also available as a facilitator or host for corporate conferences, seminars and meetings on a broad range of issues.
