World Ocean Day sees launch of Dive Project Cornwall

Dive Project Cornwall is a brand-new, not-for-profit community interest company that was launched on World Ocean Day.

The project aims to educate hundreds of thousands of young people by delivering an education programme directly into schools across the UK, raising the awareness of the importance of the planet's marine environment and its vital role in our very own existence.

Dive Project Cornwall will also reach millions of adults through promotional features via multiple media partners and strong collaborations with numerous ocean-based charities.

At the heart of Dive Project Cornwall is a competition for 400 lucky teenagers to win the experience of a lifetime; a six-day, life-changing trip to Cornwall where they will learn to scuba dive, enjoy outdoor adventures, take up beach-related activities and attend presentations from leading marine industry experts.

The 400 lucky teenagers will leave Dive Project Cornwall as ‘Ocean Influencers.’ They will then act to positively engage, inspire and motivate the next generation to save our planet.

Dive Project Cornwall needs your support!

Dive Project Cornwall is looking for sponsors to help raise the money needed to deliver the initiative – there are several ways to get involved; visit the Sponsorship Packages page – prices start from as little as £150+VAT.

Supporters already on board include PADI, Fourth Element, Suunto, Beuchat, Marine Conservation Society, Cornwall Living and Visit Cornwall.

Dive Project Cornwall needs your help and support to spread our important message to a wider audience – every penny raised through sponsorship is put back into the initiative to fulfil a vision – ‘eliminate plastic pollution and protect the marine environment to save all life in our oceans for many future generations to enjoy and cherish'.

Project Director Andy Forster said: “Please get in touch with any ideas you may have to get involved with this exciting project, and make a difference in our fight to eliminate plastic and protect the marine environment.”
