Lucky teenagers learning to become
DIVE PROJECT CORNWALL Ocean Influencers
The views over Falmouth Bay are breathtaking and are sure to provide them with a positive coastal experience. During their time with DIVE PROJECT CORNWALL they will be trained by experienced, qualified PADI Instructors and will be certified as PADI Open Water Scuba Divers,being able to dive anywhere in the world in the future. Through the outdoor adventures, beach-based activities and presentations from leading marine industry experts they will learn first-hand the important part our oceans play in the survival of our planet and how this impacts our very own existence.
DIVE PROJECT CORNWALL believes in learning through experience. The knowledge gained by the 400 lucky teenagers will be for life. All of the winners will leave with memories, friendships and a greater appreciation of our oceans; fully understanding the huge role they play in the future of the planet.
The 400 lucky teenagers will leave DIVE PROJECT CORNWALL as ‘Ocean Influencers’. With this newfound knowledge, they will be able to engage with their peers informatively, with enthusiasm and a real desire to drive change. Their voices will influence a change in attitude and behaviour and ‘turn the tide’ on the devastating effects of plastic pollution in our oceans.
