About this Event

*Please note: Event date has moved due to sailing conditions and is still pending arrival in São Miguel*

Join us for an afternoon with the women of eXXpedition, an all-female sailing voyage circumnavigating the globe conducting scientific research to help solve the ocean plastic crisis. 

The first leg of our two year journey is from Plymouth, UK to São Miguel, Açores and the ten women onboard our maiden voyage will be at Expolab sharing their firsthand experiences at sea and how they plan to use their unique skills to tackle the issue back on land. 

Amongst our crew we have women from Indonesia, Croatia, Canada and Germany, with a diverse set of skills ranging from entrepreneurs to filmmakers and archeologists, and after their talks and Q&A session we will visit the interactive lab at Expolab to showcase some of the plastic samples we've collected throughout our research. 

This event is open to the public, and is made possible thanks to the support from our local partners at the Governo de Açores and Expolab.
