Watertrek was organising on Monday 19th. September at Chiswick Pier House an evening dedicated to bringing a diverse group of organisations and specialists key to maintaining the health and vitality of the River Thames. It has been an engaging and informative night where speakers discussed topics including the challenges facing the health of our rivers and oceans, plastic pollution and water quality, the connection between recreation and the environment, latest research and environmental campaigns.
We were proud to present speakers from Tideway, Thames21, Thames Estuary Partnership, Port of London Authority, The Blue Marine Foundation and The Whale Company.
The Blue Talks supported the Totally Thames Festival and was part of the Source2Sea Thames River Relay.
Stand up paddlers were given the chance to arrive at the Blue Talks by SUP, supporting the relay baton on this 7.5km leg of the relay from Kew Bridge to Chiswick Pier Trust.
