Kendal Mountain Festival has again teamed with Patagonia, to host a five date speaking and film tour featuring environmental adventure activists.
The Patagonia Adventure Activists Tour will be delivered this autumn, bringing a diverse network of environmentally-conscious adventurers to the stage to share their first-hand accounts of the devastating impacts they have witnessed to the natural world.
The Patagonia Adventure Activists Tour is a grassroots movement for change, focusing on the environmental issues that affect us on a daily basis, and encouraging discussion. The aim of the tour is to inspire change through awareness of local NGOs alongside inspiring talks and thought provoking films from some of the world’s top adventurers.
Featuring a range of activists who have raised the profile of environmental plights through adventure, including:
• Cal Major – ocean advocate, explorer and founder of Paddle Against Plastic
• Dan Yates – kayaker and environmental activist
• Kate Rawles – long-distance cyclist and advocate of biodiversity
• Lauren MacCallum – mountain biker, snowboarder and campaigner for land access rights
• Sian Sykes – paddleboarder and regional rep for Surfers Against Sewage
• Tim Nunn – specialist water photographer and founder of The Plastic Project.
Starting in Manchester at the Patagonia store on Thursday 27 September, the tour will travel on to The Barn at Banchory on Wednesday 10 October, Plas y Brenin in North Wales on Thursday 1 November and Fourpure Brewery in London on Wednesday 7 November before finishing in Kendal on Saturday 17 November at the Kendal Mountain Festival.
