Our vision is to make learning experiential for our participants and to enable them to reach their full potential. Our values of trust, authenticity and solution orientation form the foundation of our work.

Johan Kegler

With Ocean College, Johan realizes his conviction that learning must above all happen practically. Johan has already accompanied the voyage himself twice as a teacher and project manager and therefore knows the route and life on the ship from his own experience. Since then, the potential of an educational concept on a traditional sailing ship has never left him. Johan is convinced that the classic school system no longer comes close to preparing students for the world of life and work in the 21st century.

Johanna Berg

Johanna Berg is a geographer and responsible for strategy and business development at Ocean College.
