Solutions for ocean pollution and ocean health can be challenging to implement if there is little public engagement on the issues. The best results come from those who passionately work to protect what they love, and often have had first-hand experiences. Through a unique platform combining adventure and science, eXXpedition is creating a network of inspired leaders to engage their communities in cultivating solutions and taking action that results in less pollution in our ocean.
eXXpedition runs sailing voyages all over the globe that allows women to have a first-hand experience seeing pollution in our oceans. The eXXpedition crew also participate in scientific research, solutions workshops and sharing their experiences with worldwide media. After each trip, the crew leaves the vessel charged, transformed and ready to create change.
eXXpedition is a series of all women sailing voyages working to make the unseen seen, from the toxins in our bodies to the plastics in our seas. The organization’s mission is to explore the issue of plastics, chemicals, endocrine disruptors and carcinogens in our personal and global environment that can cause disease. eXXpedition aims to engage women in scientific narratives relating to the consumer choices they make, and the long-term health impacts on individuals and the environment.
During an eXXpedition voyage the crew sample the ocean for plastics and pollutants, feeding these samples to wider studies investigating the impacts of toxins and plastic pollutants and linking this sampling to narratives of ecosystem health, personal health, and the products we consume.
