Virginia and Dorian set sail and head into the unknown waters of podcasting on the second day of the Ocean Quest. The keywords they explore are “intentions” and “goals” which are found to have a nuanced difference in how they lead to where one wants to go.
Their first two quests are Manon and Remco, who are invited on deck to talk about their reasons to join the project and their impressions so far. Manon is amazed by how fast she makes progress, finds inspirations and gains new insights. Meanwhile, Remco marvels the magic of teambuilding and its necessity for social entrepreneurship and co-creation.

By day three, things have gotten more concrete on board of the Jantje and fresh ideas are seeing the light of day upon leaving the heads and being noted. Virginia and Dorian introduce two other crew members: Sophia and Rebecca – the cook and the PR person – who talk about their intentions and motivations for the Ocean Quest. While Sophia shares her concrete idea of converting food waste on the UCU campus into energy, Rebecca’s intended outcome for now is an internal change. The manifold ways in which the Ocean Quest is used to create value shows its potential as an incubator.

The crew members sit down and reflect on the Ocean Quest together.They share their views on the group and the work done over the past days on board of the Jantje. How did the ship and being on the move facilitate the learning process and how is it applicable to learning on land? What have we learned on the difference between navigating and wayfinding? And where do we find sustainability in all of this?
We talk about the boat as a methaphore, as a place to learn in a different manner, and as a beautiful catalyst for teamwork. The Ocean Quest will continue on land and you can hear from us again after the first meet-up.
