A Royal Geographical Society with IBG lecture
Having spent a decade at sea, exploring plastic pollution from the tropics to the Arctic, former architect and now ocean advocate and skipper, Emily will share her adventures connecting her scientific insights from ‘eXXpedition’ to upstream solutions on land.
Emily Penn is an architect turned ocean advocate and skipper. After rounding the globe on a record-breaking bio-fuelled boat, she spent 10 years at sea, exploring and discovering oceanic gyres – huge areas of plastic accumulation. Emily co-founded eXXpedition on a mission to help people understand the true problem of ocean plastic pollution, so they can use their skills to solve it from sea to source.
