Traditionally designed Polynesian sailing canoes built with modern materials and propelled with fossil-fuel free technologies.

To implement a fossil fuel-free sustainable sea transportation network of modernized Pacific sailing canoes through public service and social entrepreneurship activities

Supporting Pacific Islands’ traditional knowledge as a solution, adaptation and mitigation measure for climate change. 

Advancing public environmental awareness through feature films Racing Extinction and The StarChasers, international landmark projections, ocean science symposiums and vaka-based conservation events throughout the Pacific.

Okeanos is a collection of values and ideas and solutions put into a fabric found only at the genius level. Having the Pacific people and our ancestral knowledge be a part of the solution and the pathway is really powerful .
