Whilst living and teaching in Indonesia, Sally Earthrowl became acutely aware of the issue of plastic polution on the island of Bali, but also around the world. This propelled her to join eXXpedition: an organisation running all female sailing voyages carrying out scientific research into plastic pollution and advocating for the solutions.
In this lecture, Sally will be talking about her experience of sailing across the North Pacific Gyre and the Caribbean Sea, the scientific findings, the community discussions and how our actions can make a positive difference.
This event has been organised by the East of England committee.
You will receive joining instructions for this event at 10.00am the day after making your booking, or 30 minutes prior to the event if you book on the day.
