eXXpedition: An All-Women Sea Voyage

Dr. Jenna R. Jambeck, Associate Professor at the College of Engineering at the University of Georgia (UGA), has been conducting research on marine debris (waste in our oceans) since 2001.  In November 2014 Jenna sailed across the Atlantic Ocean with 13 other women on the very first eXXpedition research voyage---a series of all-women sea voyages with the goal 'to make the unseen seen---from toxics within our bodies to toxics in our seas'.  Malin Jacob, a well known Norwegian environmentalist, was a fellow crew-member.  Please join us to hear about this exciting voyage!

members gather to network, share news, and
take part in a traditional Norwegian meal
of salmon, potatoes and cucumber salad.
