2016 TEM Weekend Summit: REDEFINING EXPLORATION & THE ESSENCE OF WATER

Exploration has changed. In the early days, discovery was mostly about filling in the blanks on the map. Since then the earth’s lands have been charted, many mountain ranges summited, forests wandered, labyrinths of caves unravelled, rivers and seas voyaged upon and peered within.  Certainly planet Earth still holds many mysteries, and our glimpses through space reveal infinitely more territories as yet unknown, however as science begins to unravel these it is clear that the nature of exploration has transformed.  As explorers today we pursue purposeful discovery. Beyond preservation and sustainability, exploration seeks to foster kinship with the planet, its species and resources, even as we continue to open the vast realms beyond planet Earth.

This weekend you will meet a number of scientists, conservationists, film producers, authors and humanitarians, all who are involved in exploration and furthering discovery. It is by meeting these individuals, hearing their talks and watching the films that are on offer this weekend, that will help to redefine and clarify exploration and its ever expanding realm and importance in today’s terms.  The weekend will also focus on “The Essence of Water”, the most vital of the Earth’s resources. It is this precious natural asset that provides the safety habitat, means of transportation, and enables all forms of life.

Charleville Castle – Global Expedition Base of The Explorers Museum sits at the crossroads of all that exploration today represents, a site for historic firsts, connectivity with the surrounding land, as well as a unique biodiversity, and primordial forests that offer opportunity for many new discoveries.

Wild Food Mary – Guided Foraging Walk

Saturday 14th September, Charleville Estate Castle 10am . Cost €5.00 pay on arrival.

Mary Bulfin, foragerchef, and lover of all good food nature has to offer. I collect wild foods, use them fresh and also preserve, make all kinds of treats from delicious elderflower delight to relishes, dried mushrooms, and wonderful liqueurs.

Foraging is the oldest human method of gathering food. It mainly consists of collecting naturally growing green leaves, flowers, berries, nuts, mushrooms and roots.

The benefits of collecting and eating wild food are many. Foraged food is healthy, ecological, tastes fantastic, and is a joy to collect!

Guided foraging walk around Charleville Estate Limited places are available so book early. Allow 2 hours. Dress appropriately

As what started out as an event providing teenagers vital information regarding suicide awareness and to offer support groups for those interested, Teen Aware is only going to be in it’s 2nd year, but has grown to be known as “Ireland’s biggest teen event!!”

Not only will this year’s event be reminiscent of 2011, Teen Aware is adding much more to the venue for 2012!!  This includes the Road Safety Authority, who’s appearance will add activities to educate teenagers on the importance of road safety.  Demonstrations to assist the RSA will include a car crash scenario and an interactive road safety experience!

And that’s only the beginning!  With the Battle of the Bands, teens will have the opportunity to enjoy live music throughout the afternoon and evening, all the while relaxing on the grounds of Charleville Castle!  Bressie, Mundy and The Original Rude Boys are just 3 of the bands scheduled to play of what will be an experience that teens of all ages will love!

Teen Aware starts at 2pm on Friday April the 6th and is scheduled to go until 10pm.  Please note that as this is strictly a teen oriented event, alcohol is highly prohibited and searches may be carried out by the Garda to ensure this policy stays in place.
