Croatian Aqua Day, that had been scheduled to take place on May 31st 2014, has been postponed to September 27th 2014 due to the catastrophic floods that in May hit the northeastern part of Croatia and also our neighbours in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia..
As you already know, the concept of every Aqua Day event is to include as many local diving centers as possible in the host country, and to do underwater cleanup and marine litter removal at the same time on the same day.
Last year 25 cities participated in the first Croatian Aqua Day. This year interest was much bigger, so we put together 37 cities in Croatia. Some of them couldn’t be part of this initiative because they had to defend their homes, their families and friends, their animals and other treasures from the floods.
In September, city of Split which is HQ od Croatian Aqua Day this year, will host many of our guests and ambassadors from Croatia and globe, which will give us support and help us to raise awareness of people, by putting in the first plan the fact how necessary is to maintain our waters clean and to put focus on a people who lost their homes in floods which left only ruins, corpses and litter.
You can also help to those people from Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia - follow the links bellow.
