What is aqua
Adriatic Underwater Academy
AqUA is a diving-educational and ecological project initiated by the Diving Club “Roniti se mora” in 2022. Throughout 2022/2023, the project AqUA has continuously educated over 235 participants in basic and advanced diving courses, as well as other diving specialties.
In 2023 alone, more than 120 children participated in educational workshops on the biodiversity of the underwater world, recognizing marine flora and fauna, and preserving the sea through ecological activities as part of the AqUA project.
The AqUA project aims to raise awareness about nature and sports as a healthy lifestyle, promote team spirit, and foster self-confidence.
The main goal of the AqUA project is to offer underwater recreational sports activities with the aim of expanding participation across all age groups, including individuals with difficulties, and to increase awareness of recreational sports as a healthy and beneficial leisure pursuit, promoting the development of a healthy lifestyle. Primarily, the focus is on educating new divers and children about the biological diversity of the sea, recognizing marine flora and fauna, and preserving the sea through ecological activities.
To ensure quality education for participants, it is crucial to first acquaint and familiarize them with the underwater environment and introduce them to everything that lies beneath the surface.
