All-female research expeditions to investigate the causes of and solutions to ocean plastic pollution.
A SERIES OF ALL-WOMEN VOYAGES TO MAKE THE UNSEEN SEEN
eXXpedition is a Community Interest Company and not-for-profit organisation that runs pioneering all-female sailing research expeditions to investigate the causes of and solutions to ocean plastic pollution.
Founded in 2014, we have run expeditions all over the world. Previous scientific research has highlighted the endemic nature of microplastics within our ocean environments globally. Our focus now is to advance a better understanding of the plastics issue as a whole and to work with industry to pinpoint solutions and policy at a global level by addressing knowledge-gaps and delivering evidence to inform effective solutions.
AN EXPERIENCE, A PLATFORM, AND A LEARNING OPPORTUNITY
While on board, each member of our multidisciplinary crew crew shares their own experiences, supports novel and innovative scientific research, participates in workshops to find where they fit in creating solutions and explores collaboration opportunities with other members of the team.
After completing their voyage, each guest crew joins our already thriving network of eXXpedition ambassadors, taking the message of ocean plastic and achievable actions back to their own communities.
eXXpedition also runs creative, participatory workshops, talks and outreach events in collaboration with local organisations and communities.
In October 2019 we launch our biggest project yet, eXXpedition Round the World. This project will see 300 multidisciplinary women sail across 30 voyages over a two-year period.
