IFAT 2018 | Emily Penn, Oceans Advocate
Emily Penn (skipper, oceans advocate, artist, and a graduate of Cambridge University with a degree in Architecture) about her task: "I’m an ocean advocate. I’m really working on the issue of marine plastic pollution. I spent about the last ten years sailing around the world looking at this issue of ocean plastic. And now I am working on ways that we can prevent it actually getting into the ocean. The message is, what can we all do for the ocean, to preserve the health of the ocean. At the moment we see more pollution, we see acidification and the degrading coral reefs. All of that - unfortunately - is human generated. But it also means that we are the solution. All we need to do is shift our behavior, particularly our consumption, minimize the amount of plastic that we use. We can actually turn around the health of our ocean."
