Emily Penn’s philosophy towards life has been shaped by spending over a decade out at sea, where one is constantly reacting to the changes around. Emily is a skipper and ocean advocate dedicated to studying environmental challenges in the most remote parts of our planet. She is an international public speaker and advisor on issues relating to our ocean and future society. She has organized large-scale community-led waste cleanups in the South Pacific, trawled for micro plastics through the Arctic Northwest Passage, rounded the planet on the record-breaking bio-fueled boat Earthrace, and worked on a cargo ship trading western supplies for coconuts. A big shift led her from a career in architecture to one dedicated to solving the issue of ocean plastic pollution. She founded eXXpedition, a pioneering all-female sailing research group investigating the causes and solutions to ocean plastic pollution. She developed the SHiFT Method to understand the crux of a problem and weigh up where we have the biggest opportunity to make an impact.
