Update #1a 11 March 2016
I am going on an expedition to Antarctica with 77 other women in science in December 2016. I am so proud to have Growing Solutions ecological restoration and sustainability institute in Santa Barbara, California as a partner in this amazing project to train women working in science fields around the world to step up to leadership roles and influence policy and decision-making in key areas of sustainability. I have also received sponsorship from Hartley Pale Ale, the best drop in San Diego, and have promised to wear their t-shirt on an ice floe down south.
If you are a woman scientist and passionate about renewable energy, managing toxic waste, teaching the next generation, networking with colleagues around the world to solve problems and influence policy makers and governance, and you would like to be part of a future Homeward Bound expedition, please have a look at the application process at
it is possible that another expedition will be run in late 2017 or early 2018. Don’t be put off by the cost, fundraising will get easier as this project gains momentum worldwide. It is already making major waves in the south of France in the wake of COP21.
You can participate in this expedition by following and contributing to discussion on our FB page at https://www.facebook.com/homewardboundprojects/
and get more details about the project at http://homewardboundprojects.com.au/http://homewardboundprojects.com.au/
here is a link to my crowdfunding page to learn more about the project and how you can participate. There is a link to my video pitch which is part of the application process. I would be eternally grateful if you can help fund my voyage into learning the skills to more effectively change human behaviour and create empathy for the conservation of our planet.
