An evening with Natalie Fee, award-winning environmental campaigner

Cranleigh School is delighted to be hosting this event as our inaugural Christmas Climate Lecture. Natalie Fee is an award-winning environmentalist, author, speaker and founder of City to Sea, a UK-based organisation running campaigns to stop plastic pollution at source.

An experienced presenter, film-maker and journalist, Natalie is a highly entertaining speaker with a fascinating story.

Natalie was inspired to launch City to Sea after watching a film about the plight of albatross chicks and the devastating effects of plastic pollution. She started with a crowdfunding campaign and now runs a busy organisation of 30 staff. Award-winning campaigns include Refill, Europe’s leading free tap water initiative; Switch the Stick, our successful cotton bud campaign run in 2016/17 which called on all UK retailers to switch from plastic to paper stem buds, stopping over 400 tonnes a year of single-use plastic at source and ‘Plastic-free Periods’ which to date has directly reached over 4 million people and includes a schools programme currently being rolled out in the England and Wales.
