Interested in diving and want it to be more socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable?
Do you worry about the health of this Blue Planet of ours?
Want to explore, but don’t think the price of entry should be major sponsorship, a camera crew, and a public relations department?
‘Time to Surface’ is launching a series of workshops, to explore how communities, organizations and individuals can determine what incentivises better outcomes for themselves and others.
'Diving Whilst Informed'. Time To Surface
In the first workshop participants will explore a common misconception that dive boat safety is just the captain’s responsibility.
Diving off a boat should be fun, however it is a dynamic environment in which we operate. Being afloat often challenges our ability to recognise hazards, and act appropriately.
In reality, the captain is responsible, we as divers are responsible, and the community is responsible. Time To Surface
Time To Surface states "this 90-minute session will empower us all to be better (stakeholders/divers) so that we can start to see things differently. It will provide us with the tools to help protect ourselves and others by recognising risks earlier.
You will walk away from this on-line practical session better informed and armed with useful skills. This will reduce the stress of boat diving, allowing you to focus on your underwater adventures."
Book your place!
The first on-line workshop - entitled ‘Shit Happens’ - will be held on Wednesday 2 March 2022 at 19.00 GMT.
TTS stated "we feels it is important that anyone can access this useful session, TTS works with a “pay it forward” philosophy. If you are able to make a small voluntary contribution to a favourite charity of your choice, or one from our list your donation will help make a positive difference to these marine organisations.
By joining the conversation you can directly impact the safety of others, ‘Time to Surface’ is planning to share the results and the ideas from each session with the broader community".
