Advise. Design. Event Production. Technical Production. Equipment.
The Ocean Cleanup reached out to us in a very early stage in the organization of their NeXt Phase Event. A period of intensive research and fundraising made for soaring expectations. Fans, shareholders and potential investors were eagerly awaiting an update on the latest developments, so this event had to be the telltale-deciding factor. We were honored to use our expertise to create this moment for them.
Together with Piet-Harm Sterk (BIND) and Fleur Nieuwland (Dutch Matters) we formed a temporary collaboration within The Ocean Cleanup organization. We worked closely together to create the best results for The NeXt Phase Event.
We gave advice, did the design and produced the event – which was held in the iconic Werkspoorkathedraal in Utrecht. We took the visitors on a journey through the progress that The Ocean Cleanup had made over the years, making sure emphasis lay on the problem of a vast amount of plastic in our oceans.
With four heavyweight anchors, moving LED screens, a full TV broadcast and live- streaming setup (just to name a few) we challenged ourselves to create a media experience that connected seamlessly with the message that needed to come across. We helped The Ocean Cleanup achieve the result that they desired.
With The Ocean Cleanup’s NeXt Phase Event, JUR and BIND won awards for:

On May 11th 2017, Boyan Slat, Founder and CEO of The Ocean Cleanup, the Dutch foundation developing advanced technologies to rid the oceans of plastic, announced a design breakthrough allowing for the cleanup of half the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in just 5 years.
The Ocean Cleanup shared details on the improved design, and announced the start of the cleanup. Boyan Slat demonstrated the new technology and unveiled the first parts of the cleanup system: four 12-meter (40-foot) high anchor components.
