About the crew leader, Emily Penn:
Emily has spent the last decade exploring plastic pollution from the tropics to the Arctic and she’s on a mission to inspire and facilitate a community of changemakers through eXXpedition, and by training and engaging top athletes, policy makers, business leaders and celebrities to be impactful advocates on ocean issues.
eXXpedition North Pacific 2018, in collaboration with TOMRA, aims to: raise awareness of the devastating impact of single-use plastic and toxics in the world’s oceans; celebrate women in science, leadership and adventure; create a community of female change-makers and inspiring global ambassadors to tackle the environmental and health impacts of plastic pollution; and champion and contribute to innovative scientific research to tackle the crisis.
See you there!
