Youth Lockdown Lecture Series

Posted by James Mchaffie on 11/01/2021

The current lockdown is a grim start to 2021 and with lots of young people off school, college or out of work we’ve set up a few free lectures to try and offset a pretty naff start to a year and to checkout some climbing, walking, volunteer and career opportunities that will still be here when this pandemic has ended.

The following webinars are available and just click on the ‘REGISTER HERE’ to book, you will receive an email with a link to the webinar 24 hours before it (be sure to check the email doesn’t arrive in your spam folder):
