AWARE Week

September 14 - September 22

In celebration of the ocean, the second annual AWARE Week is taking place around the world September 14-22, 2019. Aimed at empowering more divers to look after the underwater world, a full week of conservation activities and actions will take place.

Blue Planet has teamed up with Project AWARE and PADI to host a week full of activities for divers and other ocean-lovers in DC. From AWARE courses focused on tackling ocean pollution, to creating awareness for vulnerable shark and ray species, to empowering local communities to take positive actions for the protection of fragile aquatic environments, all are welcome — fins on and fins off.

Check out the schedule below and sign up for an event today!
