Sian Sykes: Adventure with a purpose
Location:Plas y Brenin
Sian Sykes was born on the edge of Snowdonia and enjoyed growing up in beautiful North Wales. During her adult life, she worked in Creative Media in London as a Project Director. However, after working 15 years and working 18 hour days in the industry, she wanted a better balance in life, to reconnect with nature and to be closer to the sea and mountains. Since returning home she has fallen in love with stand up paddleboarding.
Passionate about raising awareness, educating and inspiring others to reduce their daily consumption of single-use plastics; her recent stand-up paddleboard (SUP) trip around Wales (a 1000km journey) unsupported was single-use plastic free, whereby she collected plastic pollution along the way and aimed to inspire others to make a pledge against plastic.
