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 2020 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 research-backed guides and badge verification system that helps various industries minimize their environmental footprint and adopt sustainable operating practices. TOS industry-specific editions support shifts in operational infrastructure and is a resource for political action and reform. TOS connects businesses directly to approved sustainable vendors for cost-effective alternatives to products that threaten our planet. TOS badge verification system allows businesses to communicate their sustainability achievement.
TOS currently engages 400+ in 26 countries with the help of 60 consultant partners and 300+ 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
Oceanic Global partners international cities 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 plans to host our next event in this series in NYC to activate the NYC community around ocean conservation and climate change.
