The Race for Water Odyssey (R4WO) is an amazing voyage around the world — a race against time to sail a MOD70 high-performance trimaran through all 5 ocean gyres and visit island beaches in the 5 trash vortexes, to document the effects of plastic pollution on our ocean in under 300 days. We are grateful for and honored to be given the opportunity to meet with their crew, learn more about their scientific expeditions and research, and share with them our efforts to raise awareness of ocean issues and celebrate stories of hope from around the world. People like the Race for Water team are shining examples of good people doing good work to help move our Island Earth to a more sustainable future.
For those interested, June 24, 2015 is an open house for kids and schools with the Race for Water team, at their vessel at Kewalo Basin Harbor. To arrange for a visit by your students or school for June 24, please contact Emilie Llorens via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
