What is an Ocean Day?
On the surface, a Tidal Compass ‘Ocean Day’ is a teambuilding experience collecting plastic from the beach and creating a public work of art from the detritus, while learning about the natural processes that circulate plastic around the world’s oceans. An optional film of the day can be used as a marketing opportunity to show your commitment to helping clean our oceans and tackle the climate crisis.
On a deeper level, the day develops communication skills, creativity and leadership in your team. The four-hour experience is divided into four one-hour sessions, each targeting a specific discipline. Using tides as an example, Stage 1 explores how to analayse trends and develop strategies. Stage 2 is the beach clean, showcasing the positive effects of collective effort. Stage 3 is the creation of an artwork from the plastic; this is an opportunity for individuals to present their ideas to the group, practicing leadership skills. Finally, Stage 4 is a demonstration explaining the global winds and currents that circulate plastic around the world; communication skills are critical as the group simulates a complex network of moving parts.
