Promote Maritime Tourism through indigenous knowledge

Ocean Ideation is a Social Enterprise working towards sustainable environment while creating jobs – most specifically the ocean economy. Established in 2020 our sole purpose is to work towards healthy oceans while addressing unemployment through skills and knowledge development. Developing skills of youth for maritime careers will contribute towards job creation – specifically in coastal communities while ensuring protection of the marine ecosystems. Through partnerships we formulate solutions and strategies using innovation and technology to mitigate challenges caused by the impact of over fishing; pollution and managing the Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). Our collaboration with local and international stakeholders will seek to:

  • Address the local skills shortage and mismatch in the maritime sector; by developing sector skills in line local sectoral demand and global trends;
  • Creation of a knowledge and innovation hub accessible to all interested in maritime sector careers
  • Solutions based on best practice on the use of Information; Communication Technologies developed for monitoring and reporting
