Meet Ellen MacArthur

The next few ‘Foto Friday’ posts will focus on individuals who are currently working in their own way to try and make a positive difference in the world.

Dame Ellen MacArther holds the world record for the fastest single-handed circumnavigation of the globe, and after leaving professional sailing in 2010 set-up the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.

The Foundation works with schools and businesses to promote the idea of the circular economy – including cradle-to-cradle reuse of materials, sustainable resource use, replacement of fossil fuels and building better communities.

The Foundation’s Sense and Sustainability handbook for schools is available for download.
