---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In June this year, I will be sailing 3000 nautical miles across the North Pacific with a formidable all-women crew. Over three weeks, we will travel from Hawaii to Vancouver through the densest ocean plastic accumulation zone on the planet, the North Pacific Gyre (better known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch). Why? We will be doing research - scientific, design-based, creative,... looking at the impacts of plastics on the health of the planet but also our bodies. And, as a documentary filmmaker with over 15 years of experience trying to make issues like this interesting (an evolving and never-ending challenge!) I will be making a film about the expedition, the discoveries, the voyage, the women, the issue of marine plastics and persistent organic pollutants as a whole, and the solutions, to make people think about this like they never have before.


As I collect this material, I aim to engage with some schools, feeding back daily updates of the expedition and providing some classroom materials to start discussions around the issues. All of this is in the hope that it will engage school kids and young people in the issue in a more personal way. One of the other key goals of the trip is to raise the profile of women in science and adventure so I hope that we inspire young girls to see that their role in these fields is crucial too!

This is amazing and, if you have 15 minutes, I highly recommend watching Emily explain why this expedition matters...
