Winslow shop hosts travelers back from South Africa

The Traveler will host Bainbridge Islanders Fran and David Korten for a presentation about their recent trip to South Africa at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 14.

Admission is free and open to all as part of the Tuesdays at The Traveler series.

The shop is located at 256 Winslow Way East.

In November, Dave, who is co-founder and former board chair of YES! magazine, gave a keynote address at the annual global conference of the Club of Rome, a prestigious nonprofit whose members consist of current and former heads of state, U.N. bureaucrats, high-level politicians and government officials, diplomats, scientists, economists, and business leaders from around the globe.

Following the conference, the Kortens spent two weeks in Cape Town and Johannesburg in discussions with South African thought leaders regarding “the lessons of the South African experience for both the country’s future as well as for its role in advancing the human transition to a world that works for both people and Earth,” event officials said.

According to the couple, “Our visit to South Africa pushed us to a deeper understanding of humanity’s crisis and what our common future will require.”

The Kortens will share their reflections and engage the audience at The Traveler in exploring the implications of “the South Africa experience.”

Celebrating its 25th year of service, The Traveler is a travel store dedicated to equipping the modern world traveler, inspiring a love of travel and fostering understanding of other cultures.
