Like the ancient Greeks hundred years ago sat down and started to talk about the Olympic Games, so are we sitting together and talking about World Aqua Day, the day when humankind comes together to protect the only thing this planet can't survive without, a powerful force, natural force that is keeping all the life on this planet alive - water.
The opening ceremony of the World Aqua Day plays an essential part of the project and recognition of the efforts that is being done by divers and people all around the world. Becoming a part of this project is not just a walk in the park or going out in nature to take some photos with some plastic in the hand, saying „We are supporting this action“. It's a hard, demanding, and dangerous work that can harm you. Once you dive below the surface to take out the heavy objects or to collect plastic and other non-degradable waste, it's a hard work that demands strength, courage, and determination. We chose to open World Aqua Day each year with a ceremony that represents the human effort to deal with this constant growing threat to humankind and to show appreciation for all the divers and people around the world that participate in this action.
