We deliver innovative and collaborative workshops, designed around your needs, that use the water world as a gateway to new skills, resilience and inspiration for life both in and out of the water. Examples include hosting the interactive workshop A Guide to Outdoor Swimming at the Women’s Adventure Expo, working with local swimming pools on community engagement strategies, and hosting a panel of women from across the #WSC at Adventure Uncovered Live.
The Women’s Adventure Expo: We shared inspiring stories from across the #WSC and participants worked in smaller groups discussing training, kit, and execution of a number of swim challenges from your first 500m to your first 10km and beyond.
Adventure Uncovered Live: “Outdoor Swimming A Gateway for positive Change” Alice was joined by the swimspirational Becky Horsbrugh whose swimming journey has taken her from open water novice to qualified swim teacher and drowning prevention advocate; working with local stakeholders in Bangladesh to develop a drowning prevention scheme; and Emma M Watson, to discuss her empowering #waitingforthecall campaign, in which she was photographed in various every day situations in her Channel swimming gear, raising awareness of endometriosis and challenging a myriad of preconceptions in the process.
