Navigating our way to a plastic free ocean with Emily Penn (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 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.
