David de Rothschild

Founder, MYOO

2010

David de Rothschild is an adventurer, environmentalist, and the founder of MYOO. It is MYOO's goal to inspire dreams, fuel conversation, share innovations, and activate change in order to give nature a voice. His adventurous spirit, passion, and commitment to action have sent him to some of the world's most remote and fragile regions in order to bring widespread media attention and, moreover, solutions to urgent global environmental issues. He has a unique ability to take his no-nonsense call to action across all demographics, be it from children to world leaders, NGOs to NASA, industries to nonprofits. In the summer of 2010, de Rothschild embarked on his most challenging and high-profile adventure yet, the Plastiki. The Plastiki set sail on an ocean adventure over 8,000 nautical miles across the Pacific Ocean from San Francisco to Sydney.
