Event Details

Kicking off our second day is writer and environmentalist Dr Kate Rawles, author of 'The Carbon Cycle'.

Dr Kate Rawles

On Tuesday 28th March, starting at 2pm, Dr Kate Rawles will be talking about her “Adventure in the Andes” and The Life Cycle biodiversity bike ride. In 2017, Kate cycled the length of South America on a bamboo bike she built herself, exploring biodiversity: what it is, why it matters and whether losing it is as great a threat as climate change. Kate is a fellow of the RGS-IBG, a member of the Adventure Syndicate and an eco-ambassador for the Lake District Foundation.
