Sailor Ellen MacArthur on eco mission
Round-the-world yachtswoman Ellen MacArthur has said she will use the voice that her celebrity has brought her to promote the sustainability agenda.
She drew parallels between the need to carefully manage the limited supplies taken on a competitive boat race and the way we are squandering fossil fuels while taking a reliable energy supply for granted.
Ms MacArthur told delegates she had spent the last three years researching environmental issues and that she now wants to drive home the fact that sustainable living is of vital importance to as wide an audience as possible.
