Emily Penn is an oceans advocate, skipper and artist; a graduate of Cambridge University with a degree in Architecture. 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 cleanup 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 is the youngest and only female recipient of Yachtmaster of the Year, awarded by HRH Princess Royal. She splits her time between leading expeditions and running Pangaea Explorations, the organisation she established to enable scientists, filmmakers and everyday people gain access to the most remote parts of our planet; collecting data on global issues and along the way have discovered previously unknown oceanic gyres – huge areas of plastic pollution accumulation. An experienced public speaker, Emily has spoken around the world at conferences, universities and global companies, sharing both her adventures and an understanding of the issues relating to our oceans, human mindset and future society.
