Beyond A Click

What can you do beyond a click, for hurricane relief?

On Wednesday 8th November, Ocean Generation presented its first episode of Beyond A Click. In support of the Barbuda Relief Fund, we had an incredible line up of talent, from musicians to scientists perform at the YouTube Space London.

The show kicked o with performances from Trey Qua and Dom Mcallister. In between, we

had interviews with world famous skipper and activist Emily Penn and a first hand recount of surviving a hurricane, from Dominica resident Victoria Nasseif. Along with video messages from Chris Hines, co-founder of Surfers Against Sewage, Former Prime Minister of Haiti, Laurent Lamothe and YouTube scientist Matthew Shirbman, encouraging viewers to think about their own behaviours and how they affect climate change.

Music performed by Loop, Joy Mumford, returning Ocean Generation ambassador Jodie Abacus and to close the evening we had an emotional performance by Marlon Roudette. Marlon was waving his native island flag of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, during September his island was spared by the regional hurricane devastation, but his family has been assisting the relief efforts of neighbouring islands like Dominica and Barbuda.

Beyond A Click, is our new platform to raise awareness about climate change and our well- being in a networked society. Using digital technology, creative artists, and our extensive social circle, Beyond A Click aims to change how global issues are addressed and modernise how vital information is shared. We hope interactive shows like Beyond A Click will prompt the audience to reach out and understand the issue through the eyes of young people growing up on small islands. It’s about building a collective for powerful change.
