Lots happening at A Lotus Rises HQ… First up, you are invited to the inaugural Swim Nation! on 22nd June 2.30pm – 4pm at Dartington Hall in Devon. To register, email firstname.lastname@example.org and is free to attend.
From wild river dippers to leisure centre lane lappers, all are invited to participate in the first of a series of informal and collaborative ‘Swim Summits’ around the UK. At a time when water scarcity, sustainability, well being, access and participation in swimming are increasingly in the spotlight, we want to harness the knowledge, experience and passion of local swimmers and how we can translate that into practical change in policy and behaviour, to help promote well being and sustainability at an individual and community level.
This will be a collaborative workshop and takes place as part of the Liquidscapes conference at Dartington Hall in Devon and and involves members of the local swimming community as well as Liquidscapes delegates. Just let liquidscapes know if you would like to attend (email@example.com). More info here.
Together we will identify practical recommendations that can inform the way we live, work and enjoy the water, and how to influence the channels and change-makers we need to make them a reality.
We are 60% water and 71% of the earth’s surface is covered in water – it’s what connects and sustains us, yet that commonality is easily forgotten. It’s time to reconnect. Can using the framework of a hydrocentric citizenry help secure a sustainable and peaceful future?
More information about the project can be found here. Not based in/near Devon? No worries! Urban, rural, leisure centre pool, loch or lido – We can host a Swim Summit near you – please email firstname.lastname@example.org and follow @hydrocitizen on Instagram to find out more.
