1. Grassroots Activations: Educational Engagement and Community-Based Programs
Oceanic Global‘s grassroots initiatives focus on empowering millennials to drive localized impact on a global scale. Oceanic Global does this through our Hubs Program (we have Hubs in the following regions: London, LA, the Hamptons, Barcelona, NYC), events (such as producing the 2019 United Nations World Oceans Day event), and awareness campaigns.
2. Industry Solutions: Sustainable Operating Practices at Scale
One of Oceanic Global's primary pillars is providing sustainable solutions for businesses of different industries. In this mission, we developed The Oceanic Standard (TOS) program. TOS is a set of free industry-specific guides for adopting sustainable practices that meet both business and environmental needs. TOS consists of various industry and country-specific, research-backed editions designed to support shifts in operational infrastructure, while promoting best practices for responsible consumption. TOS demonstrates that b2c and b2b change is possible, and serves as a resource for political action and reform.
Oceanic Global has awarded over 300 TOS badges in 30 cities with the help of 20 consultant partners and 100 sustainable vendor partners around the world, so far impacting four policies banning single-use plastics. We have hosted five country-specific TOS launch events (US, UK, Spain, Mexico, Barbados) as we grow this movement globally!
3. City-by-City Immersive Experiences
Every two years, Oceanic Global partners with a different international city to create an immersive experience that generates measurable impact in the community, while raising awareness and igniting action for ocean conservation, using art, music, and other universal passions as a medium to bring people together. We hosted our inaugural event, Oceanic x Ibiza, in July 2017 in Ibiza, which sparked the island's upcoming ban on single-use plastics. Oceanic Global will be hosting our next event in this series in June 2020 in NYC to activate the NYC community around ocean conservation and climate change.
