Ocean Robbins

DanOcean’s grandfather, Irvine Robbins, founded Baskin-Robbins (31 flavors) ice cream company.

Ocean’s father, John, grew up swimming in an ice cream cone shaped swimming pool and being groomed to one day join his dad in the family company. But when John was in his early 20s, he walked away from a path of tremendous fame and fortune, and a life of seemingly unlimited consumption, to follow his own “rocky road” and pursue a life of unlimited compassion. He wound up moving with Ocean’s mother, Deo, to a little island off the coast of Canada where they built a 1-room log cabin, grew most of their own food, and lived on less than $500 per year.

Ocean was born in that cabin, to parents who lived simply and practiced yoga and meditation for several hours every day. Ocean’s spent his formative early years steeped in values of deep practice and social conscience.

Stepping Out Globally
At 15, Ocean was co-founder of the Creating Our Future environmental speaking tour, on which he and three other participants spoke in person to more than 30,000 students, presented for 2,000 people at the United Nations, and opened for the Jerry Garcia band in San Francisco.

Ocean and Michele Robbins, 2008

In 1990, at 16, Ocean was founder of YES!, an organization he directed for the next 20 years.  YES! has reached more than 620,000 people in 1,200 school assembly and conference presentations. YES! has also organized and facilitated 100+ week-long gatherings for young leaders from 65+ nations, published seven youth action guides, and led hundreds of day-long workshops.  Ocean has personally spoken and facilitated leadership gatherings in Jordan, Israel/Palestine, Singapore, Costa Rica, Russia, Finland, Canada, the Netherlands, India, Peru, and across the USA.


Accomplishments

Ocean is co-author of Choices For Our Future: A Generation Rising For Life On Earth (1994) and of The Power of Partnership (2009), and speaks widely, spreading a message of hope and inspiration to conferences, companies and organizations.

Ocean’s on-going efforts on behalf of a better world have been honored by many organizations, including the Giraffe Project (for people who stick their necks out for what they believe), the National Alliance for Animals (The Compassionate Youth Award), E Magazine (The Kid Heroes Hall of Fame), and EarthSave (Volunteer of the Year Award). Utne Reader recognized him as one of 30 “Young Visionaries” under 30, and both both Time and Audubon magazines chose him as being among the heroes of the new millennium. He is a 2008 recipient of the Freedom’s Flame Award, and of the national Jefferson Award for Outstanding Public Service by an Individual 35 Years Or Younger (the “Nobel prize for public service”). He is father to River and Bodhi Robbins, identical twin boys born in 2001.

Ocean lives happily in the mountains of Santa Cruz, California, with his beloved wife Michele and their twin boys. They live 100 yards from Ocean’s parents, Deo and John Robbins (author of the international bestseller Diet for a New America and founder of EarthSave).
