‘National Geographic Live’ Continues to Grow With New Speaker Series

James Edward Mills

National Geographic Live has brought world-renowned storytellers — photographers, scientists, filmmakers, conservationists, and explorers — to stages across the globe to share their awe-inspiring stories from the field with audiences in person.

Since April 2020, National Geographic has been providing audiences with a new way to experience virtual offerings of the Nat Geo Live experience, right in their own homes. 

These interactive Facebook Lives allows viewers to explore the behind-the-scenes stories⁠ and stunning imagery⁠ from National Geographic’s world-renowned photographers, scientists, authors, filmmakers, conservationists, and adventurers from the comfort of home. These events also give viewers the unique opportunity to engage with these speakers during the live audience Q&A portion of each event. 

Upcoming events include a special Black History Month edition of Backstage Live with James Edward Mills, where viewers can get an inside look at how people of color have transformed U.S. national parks and how James is teaching diversity, equality, and inclusion in outdoor recreation to the next generation.

An event with Nizar Ibrahim and Sebastián Rozadilla will give viewers a fascinating look at the evolving science of dinosaurs, while a Studio Session with Émilie Régnierwill allow viewers to participate in a step-by-step process to learn how the photographer and visual artist uses seriagraphic printing, silk screening, and collage techniques.

National Geographic Live is also growing with a new Resilience Executive Speaker Series, in an effort to bring stories of personal fortitude from our Explorers, photographers and storytellers to virtual workplaces. As employers look for ways to lift employee morale remotely, these inspiring speakers offer a unique solution for corporate clients.
