Look For: Oceanus at Novus

May 22, 2015 at The Battery in San Francisco –

The future is in your hands.

The future is in your hands.

An evening of stirring, inspirational talks with successful visionaries out to change the world? Count us in! Novus invites the public to reimagine the American dream, and presents an impressive host of speakers and presenters to act as lanterns. Oceanus was immediately enthused at the opportunity to hear from fellow pioneers, and then further thrilled to be invited to speak at the conference. Our mindset going in: reimagine the worldwide dream.

Join us Friday, May 22, at The Battery in San Francisco, for a fireside chat with Sean Ironstag (founder of Oceanus) and Ari Eisenstat (Novus delegate, founder of Draem Ventures, and Oceanus board member), as we discuss what it means to us to truly be progressive and create a better, higher model of society. We look forward to an open and engaging atmosphere, and the opportunity to connect with similarly ambitious people. See you there!

Oceanus signs United Nations mandate for The Human Right to Water and Sanitation be included in the Post-2015 Development Agenda Declaration

Think about this: every sixty seconds a child dies of a water-related disease.

Are you enjoying access to clean water? Enjoying not being critically dehydrated? Having access to sanitary needs? Not dying from cholera? So too would the many children of the world outside of your frame of reference who do not currently enjoy these luxuries.

The human right to clean water and proper sanitation is something that has been ignored too long, and a lack of action in regards to these basic needs for human survival will not be tolerated any longer!

Oceanus has cast its support to pass this mandate for inclusion in the Sustainable Development Goals that will help to shape the next 15 years of this planet’s development.

Between now and when you first began reading this, there is one less precious young life on this planet due to lack of water and sanitation. Contact the United Nations today to demand this mandate’s inclusion in the Declaration of the Post-2015 Development Agenda. There is NO EXCUSABLE reason for not acting right this moment before another child perishes from lack of action.
