Synchronising the planet

Expected WAD Timelines

World Aqua Day Opening Ceremony serves to recognize all the ordinary people, all the divers around the world, who work together on this special day to reduce the waste and stop the pollution of our oceans, lakes, and rivers. This ceremony makes a global statement. It is a symbol of hope and salvation for the Earth’s waters.


1st World Aqua Day

The 1st global World Aqua Day was organized in 2013 when 30 countries participated in the cleanup. This worldwide underwater cleanup was successfully performed by diving centers around the world and more than 150 tons of garbage and toxic waste was taken out from our oceans, lakes, and rivers just by divers hand. On this day the borders between countries disappeared and continents were brought together. It was a day when everybody was involved, from local fishermen to country leaders, presidents, kings, prime ministers and divers around the world.


2nd World Aqua Day

2nd World Aqua Day was opened by H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco in Monaco, in front of 60 participating countries. Almost 300 tons of non-degradable waste was taken out by divers' hands on a single day. 2nd World Aqua Day was very important because it defined itself as the final solution for the ocean protection, preservation, and cleaning. Each year another country will host this opening ceremony and the ecological torch will be passed on from hand to hand by presidents, prime ministers or members of the royal families. World Aqua Day is the most supported and respected project of our times. In the next few years, it will develop beyond our vision and imagination.
