We are delighted to kick off this year’s Adventure Activists Tour at Patagonia’s very own store in the centre of Manchester. Join us for an evening of talks from kayaker and free flowing rivers campaigner Dan Yates, and ocean advocate, explorer and founder of Paddle Against Plastic Cal Major who has just paddleboarded from Land’s End to John O’Groats.
We will also be showing inspirational films and giving information on how you can become an Adventure Activist.
Dan Yates is a kayaker and environmental activist. Travelling the world as an expedition kayaker, he sees firsthand the destruction that hydroelectric development of free-flowing rivers has on both the environment and local communities. Dan is a director of Save Our Rivers, a campaign for the protection of our last wild free-flowing rivers, and a partner in the Free Rivers Fund.
Cal Major is an ocean advocate, explorer and founder of Paddle Against Plastic, raising awareness of the problem of plastic pollution in the ocean, and campaigning for reducing plastic use at source. Her expeditions aim to inspire reconnection to nature and an appreciation of the importance of the oceans, resulting in a commitment to protect them.
