Dr Lucy Gilliam is a Founder and Director of New Dawn Traders, a partnership of Artists, Scientists, and Chefs re-imagining global trade by sail while promoting the concept of ‘slow food’. Lucy is a Microbial Ecologist & Soil Scientist, having previously worked as a researcher at Rothamsted Research and as a science advisor for Defra. Lucy is passionate about food & cooking, biodiversity & nature, sailing & the sea, activism & storytelling for a greener cleaner planet, which combines in New Dawn Traders perfectly. With her latest project she is collaborating with oceans conservation expert Emily Penn and her company Pangea explorations to do an all women's crossing of the Atlantic on the scientific research yacht Sea Dragon. They will be assembling a crew of 10 women and will be participating the the UNESCO annual Atlantic Odessey race from the Canary Islands to Martinique in the Caribbean. As they race they will be sampling for ocean plastics,  creating an exciting conversation space to discuss women's health, pollution, plastics, and the products we consume. They are collaborating with breast cancer charity, Coppafeal to in particular raise awareness of escalating breast cancer rates in young women.

Evidence points to a number of endocrine disrupting chemicals that could be the cause. While there are no clear answers, they would like to raise awareness and challenge behaviours."
