Thames21’s active days for corporate groups enable your team to:

  • Get climate active and climate aware
  • Improve wellbeing
  • Connect with each other informally
  • Build team
  • Think creatively
  • Learn practical skills
  • Learn about rivers, water and climate change
  • Hit sustainability goals
  • Have fun!

Activities include:

  • Planting wetlands and woodlands to reduce flood risk and store carbon
  • Removing invasive species to improve biodiversity and create habitat for wildlife
  • Reconnecting rivers to floodplains by removing toeboards
  • Improve access to rivers and their health by clearing scrub
  • Pulling tonnes of plastic and wet wipes out of rivers before they are swept out to the ocean and contribute to the risk of ecosystem collapse

Each group makes a BIG difference to London’s rivers AND to our climate future. Activities vary throughout the seasons, and are accessible and fun for people of all abilities.
