Introduction

In 2016 Lizzie Car became the first person to paddle board the entire length of Britain’s waterways. In 2017 she became the first woman to paddle board solo across the English Channel. In 2018 she became the first person to paddle board the entire length of the Hudson River.  She combined her paddle boarding with raising awareness of plastic pollution. Lizzie speaks to Phoebe Smith about how paddle boarding has gained popularity and become an easy way to travel waterways. She will also be giving tips on how we can all do our bit to improve plastic pollution.

 

After the talk, Lizzie will be signing copies of her book Paddling Britain at the ‘Signings at Stanfords’ stand.
