THE NATURAL CURIOSITY OF OCEAN EXPLORERS
EXPLORE was founded by the renowned french offshore sailor, Roland Jourdain and his team in 2014. The Concarneau, France based incubator focuses on supporting exploration with three main components to its mission: scientific understanding, innovation, and raising awareness.
The project: EXPLORE used the legacy grant to develop 12 new educational kits with its incubator winners, based on the technological and scientific discoveries of ocean-related explorations, and to train educators and NGOs on their use. The lesson plans are designed to teach students about marine biodiversity, plastic pollution, energy reduction, and the preservation of water resources.
Our activation: Alongside the educational actions during the school year, EXPLORE created a ‘Village of Explorers’ mobile learning van to exhibit all 12 toolkits at public and family events, providing a unique opportunity for young people to meet the explorers who are acting today for a sustainable tomorrow. The first of these took place alongside 11th Hour Racing Team’s participation at the race village during the start of the Transat Jaques Vabre.
