Emily Penn – Sailing the Line
10th November 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Emily Penn is an oceans advocate, skipper and artist. 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 clean-up 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 has spoken around the world, sharing both her adventures and an understanding of the issues relating to our oceans, human mindset and future society.
