Rowing for Revolution: An Interview with Roz Savage

Roz Savage, ocean explorer, rower, and advocate

Each year, Yale University welcomes a small group of exceptional “global leaders” into the Yale World Fellows program. Among 2012 enrollment was Roz Savage, an impressive woman from England who left her job, her house, and her routine life to pursue a life of adventure and environmental advocacy.

She has single-handedly rowed across all the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans to raise awareness on plastics in the oceans.

I had the opportunity to interview her, and learn from her experience, this past November. The interview was recently published on Yale’s Sage Magazine, where you can read it here.

“I’m a real believer in following your curiosity and seeing where it leads you.”

  1. What a wonderful interview, Roz is an amazing and inspirational person. While on her site I came across this very special video, I think you will really like it. http://www.youngvoicesonclimatechange.com/movie_oil-spill.php
    Finally, this seems an appropriate place to pridefully announce that my son Erik was just accepted into the Vermont School of Law which boasts the #1 rated Environmental Law Specialty in the nation. 😀
