OCEAN LITERACY CREATIVE SPRINT
5pm 15th March - 6:30pm 16th March
We're exploring creative ways to help us humans understand our influence on the ocean, and the ocean's influence on us.
You're one of the creatives, designers, strategists, writers, culture jammers, technologists, scientists, creative activists, marine conservationists, brands and business folks we are convening for our second 24hr Wild Labs sprint!
Ocean literacy is being written into the curriculum and engaging lesson plans are being developed by our partners. How could we launch the ocean literacy curriculum like we would a new kids game or new product? How can we get teachers and kids excited about bringing ocean literacy into the classroom?
We need to help people see how the ocean shows up in cities and inland. How could we link the ocean to rivers or swimming pools, when people use them? And through this, can we help people to see how our cities are often the pollution source for the ocean?
Ocean literacy is currently an academic set of principles. How can we bring ocean literacy to life through a new way of talking about it and creative ways to educate and land awesome bits of ocean facts? How could we move people through learning towards becoming ocean wise, from learning cards to becoming ambassadors?

On Friday evening, for those who want to carry on the party, we’re heading to Boca Bar where we have a table reserved for those who’d like to join.
Bring the tools of your trade: your laptop, tablet, camera, favourite pen or whatever you ‘work in’. The dress code is casual. Wear whatever you feel comfortable in.
We're leading an experimental, venture based approach to concepting, developing and launching a range of creative interventions to accelerate ocean literacy in UK culture. It's new and we're learning into it, so we've written an agreement to put some shape around how we want to work together.
