2019 - Lake Superior
As the Ocean Bridge team, you will contribute to the health of our Oceans by participating in a 10-day immersive wilderness expedition delivering a marine conservation service project of your design. In the months leading up to this extended service, you will co-create your project with the local community and each other. By living, working and reflecting as a team in an iconic natural setting, you develop social capital, respect for diversity and a heightened sense of responsibility and pride.
As a national team, Ocean Bridge will:
- Spend five months leading up to the journey identifying and planning their service project(s).
- Co-create their service project(s) with the local community and one another.
- Live together in the North shore of Lake Superior from June 14-24th. We will come together as a group of 40 on June 14, spending the night at the Pawgwasheeng First Nation Pow Wow grounds. On June 15 half the group will head to Pukaskwa National Park for 2 nights, while the other half will stay at Pawgwasheeng First Nation. On June 17 the group will switch for the following 2 nights. We will then all come together as a group again, staying at the Chalet Lodge with Red Rock Indian Band for the remaining 5 nights.
- Have a budget of $25,000 to support them in achieving their goals.
- Share their experience through social and media communications.
Planning your team service project:
This space will guide you through identifying, planning, delivering, and sharing your ocean health service project. Some challenges will be completed by you as an individual, but most will require you to work collectively as a team. Leading up to your wilderness expedition you will:
- Learn about the Indigenous Peoples of your home community.
- Form working groups and create a work plan to guide you through your project.
