In 2008, the centre served as a holiday and recuperation destination for Chinese children who suffered in a major earthquake. To mark the tenth anniversary of this occasion, a meeting between the Okean staff and their former young charges was organised on the sidelines of the Eastern Economic Forum.
Children from China travel to the Okean centre almost every year to take part in various programmes. In addition to this, teachers and students from the PRC receive language training at the centre, while Okean employees go to Chinese universities as interns.
