IWA Launches IWA TV – Live streaming for the inland waterways

IWA TV launches this month bringing live streamed events to the living rooms and boats of waterways enthusiasts across the country. As well as live events, more than 30 hours of carefully curated content is now available to watch on demand.


Whether viewers are interested in the heritage and history of the waterways, restoration projects or sustainable boating and what the future of the waterways might look like, there is something for everyone.



The Inland Waterways Association, the charity that campaigns to protect and restore 6,500 miles of inland waterways, has expanded its programme of webinars this year. Volunteers and presenters from across the waterways sector have been invited to discuss issues affecting the waterways today, as well as the rich history and heritage that make them so special.



IWA National Chair, Paul Rodgers, has hosted many of these events. He says “As the impact of the lockdown became apparent earlier this year, we started to move some of our events online. This initiative has demonstrated the resilience and adaptability of our volunteers and supporters.


“Members who would not normally be able to get to physical meetings have also been able to take part. Our campaigns have been brought to life with these interactive live video broadcasts in a way that we hadn’t imagined at the beginning of the year.”
