Championed Expedition - The Plastic Tide

The SES has wanted to develop a means of giving ‘non-financial support’ to those leading expeditions which meet the SES objectives and is delighted to have taken on Peter Kohler's - The Plastic Tide as its first Championed Expedition.

The Plastic Tide expedition is looking to harness cutting edge drone and algorithm technology to create an open source map of the plastic pollution problem, in the UK and beyond.
