The Round Table is a joint format of Okeanos Foundation for the Sea and the Institute for Mindfulness, Connectedness and Engagement (AVE).

A major project in cooperation with various Pacific nations was the preparation and implementation of the two-year voyage that brought together over 200 sailors, navigators and young adults from the Pacific to revive the tradition of star navigation and set an example for marine conservation.

Together with the academy award winner Louie Psihoyos, Okeanos succeeded in realising a documentary film about species extinction, which was awarded the best documentary film of the decade

The book will be published in October 2022 by the renowned children’s and young people’s book publisher Friedrich Oetinger and is the second part of the highly acclaimed book “Paulas Reise oder warum ein Huhn uns zu Klimaschützern machte” (‘Paula’s journey or why a chicken turned us into climate activists’), which is used in various schools as a basis for dealing with climate and environmental issues.

Hardly anything connects people as strongly as music does. Knowing about that power of music, Okeanos is proud to support the project ‘Seventeen Global Goals – a song for the world in need’

For the first time, Okeanos supports an outstanding nature writer with our project ‘wave writer’.
