Doctor Mark Hickman - University of Central Lancashire

Dr Mark Hickman is a senior lecturer in the School of Sport, Tourism and The Outdoors at the University of Central Lancashire.

 After an outdoor career spanning some three decades, and experience in over twenty countries, his main areas of research are now leadership development through remote expeditions, and active ageing in the outdoors. His work challenges the accepted narrative of ‘pathologizing’ the ageing process and instead explores the positive opportunities that this stage in the life course affords.
