CEO und Founder
Emily Penn is an oceans advocate, skipper and artist; a graduate of Cambridge University with a degree in Architecture.
As much at home in and on the water as she is on dry land, Emily’s ability to develop and communicate solutions for challenges facing today’s society has been sharpened by a diverse portfolio of unique experiences.
She has organised the largest ever community-led waste cleanup from a tiny Tongan island, trawled for micro plastics on a voyage through the Arctic Northwest Passage, rounded the planet on the record-breaking biofuelled boat Earthrace, and worked on a sailing cargo ship trading western supplies for coconuts.
Emily splits her time between running eXXpedition – a series of all female voyages which focus on the relationship between plastics and toxics and female health – and working on solving the ocean plastics issue with Parley for the Oceans and other corporate clients.
In October 2019 Emily’s organisation eXXpedition will embark on a two-year global circumnavigation involving 300 amazing women to study and find solutions for the ocean plastic issue. Please get in contact with emily: firstname.lastname@example.org
