Earth Day Twitter Chat

Earth Day is about each individual taking part in the active protection of the environment around us, and for divers, this means driving awareness towards the conservation of our beloved oceans. That’s why PADI is leading the conversation on Sustainable Development Goal #14 – Life Below Water as a part of an ongoing effort to support global efforts and be a catalyst for change through our Four Pillars of Change.  Mission Blue, the UN Sustainable Development Goals section, and Project Aware will be joining us at 9am PST on 22nd April to ignite the conversation on how the health of our oceans is impacted by various aspects of life and how we can all make a difference.
