Making the unseen seen with exxpedition
All-female expedition investigates ocean plastic pollution causes and solutions…
Founded in 2014 by avid sailors Emily Penn and Lucy Gilliam, eXXpedition is a Community Interest Company and not-for-profit organisation that runs pioneering all-female sailing research expeditions to investigate the causes of, and solutions to ocean plastic pollution.
eXXpedition was founded to shift the way people feel, think and act by building a global network of multidisciplinary women who can contribute to world-class scientific studies, explore solutions, and use their unique skillsets to tackle the problem from all angles.
The current focus of eXXpedition is to provide a better understanding of the growing issue of plastic pollution, to pinpoint solutions and policy at a global level by addressing knowledge-gaps and delivering evidence to inform effective solutions.
