21st Mar 2018  Duration: 23 hours 59 minutes

The SES Annual General Meeting will be held on Wednesday 21 March 2018 at the Park Tower Hotel, Knightsbridge, London and will start at 6pm. All members are most welcome.

The Scientific Exploration Society is delighted to announce that Emily Penn will be the guest speaker following the AGM. Emily is an architect turned ocean advocate and skipper. After rounding the globe on a record-breaking bio-fuelled boat, she spent 8 years at sea, exploring and discovering oceanic gyres - huge areas of plastic accumulation. Emily co-founded Pangaea Explorations, an organisation dedicated to marine education, conservation and exploration via a 72ft sailing vessel.

Emily will share her insights from high seas to low lying islands, connecting her experiences to the challenges facing today's society. She will delve into the issue of ocean plastic pollution; from rigorous scientific analysis to developing solutions involving large-scale community involvement.
