The regulator says the number of prosecutions for river pollution has dropped to a 5 year low. Water companies are owned by overseas investors and pension funds.
Theo Thomas, London Waterkeeper, will explore how we can make ourselves heard and change the current power imbalance.
Theo Thomas founded London Waterkeeper to be an independent voice for the Capital’s rivers.
He was a BBC news journalist in the East Midlands before combining his passion for the environment with social justice.
Theo worked for Thames21 for 12 years leading its work on water quality, citizen science and sustainable drainage.
He has a vision for a swimmable River Thames which would see thousands of people benefit from improved physical and mental health.
