Ozeankind® e.V.
Where can I meet Ozeankind?


More or less always when we are not cleaning up, planning projects or actually realizing them, we are in Germany. Being in Germany, we are booked for presentations, workshops and events … and recently you can also meet us on fairs. Find the upcoming Ozeankind® events here.


Ozeankind meets Joey Kelly

Lecture by Joey Kelly & his son Luke: “No Limits – How do I achieve my goal” is much more than just a motivational lecture for athletes, because according to Joey Kelly the whole life is a marathon. The aim of his speech was to encourage people to continue on their individual path. Instead of losing sight of your dreams because they seem unattainable, you should set yourself small goals. He would like to remind us that the “limits”, i.e. the boundaries, are often much further away than we think.

So life would be about fighting the “inner bastard” again and again to pursue his goals. For the first time, Kelly’s 18-year-old son Luke was part of the event. Among other things, he will report on the trip from Berlin to Beijing with his father in an old VW van – without money for food or petrol.

We are present in Ahlen with an information stand. A part of the surplus of this event series goes to us, Ozeankind e.V.

Ozeankind gives a lecture within the K fair. The World’s No. 1 Trade Fair for Plastics and Rubber.

The special show “Plastics Shape the Future” sees itself as a podium for solutions and answers to current social trends and discussions. Interesting topics such as recycling management, marine litter and resource conservation on the one hand and materials innovation and digitisation on the other are discussed in detail. “Plastics shape the Future” aims not only to offer an international information and networking platform, but also to increasingly involve politics and socially relevant groups with keynote speeches and discussion rounds.

The special show is a project of the German plastics industry under the leadership of PlasticsEurope Deutschland e. V. and Messe Düsseldorf. From 16 to 23 October 2019 during K 2019, it shows which developments are already taking shape today and which visions can be implemented tomorrow.
