Croatian Aqua Day is a project in which we aim to clean all Croatian rivers, lakes and the Croatian side of Adriatic coast from solid waste.
On May 11th 2013 GUWAA organized first Croatian Aqua Day (Dan hrvatskih voda).
Check it out on our Facebook page:
In this project participated 18 Croatian cities: Opatija, Rijeka, Rovinj, Mali Lošinj, Pula, Poreč, Zadar, Omiš, Podstrana, Korčula, Hvar, Kaštela, Ploče, Umag, and Dubrovnik on the coast, and Petrinja, Osijek, and Vukovar on the land (river cleanup).
With this project we want to raise awareness of local people and young generations of negative effects of waste in the water environment.
Our mission is to organize "Croatian Aqua Day" (Dan hrvatskih voda) throughout the Republic of Croatia every year and continue this tradition. This event is focused on popularization of systematic cleaning and protection of water resources and education of people in general. We are aiming to collect as much waste as we can from sea, river, and lake beds to keep them clean for our and future generations.
With this project we promote ecology, especially to younger generations by organizing workshops, educational seminars, etc.
