About Dive Project Cornwall

Dive Project Cornwall is a new and exciting, not-for-profit community interest company and is the inspiration of Andrew Forster, CEO and Founder of Leven Media Group. Having moved his family to Cornwall from Bath, Andrew’s passion for marine conservation along with scuba-diving developed. He soon realised how lucky he was to be able to have this experience, whilst recognising that many others will never get the chance.

Now, as a PADI-certified Dive Master, Andrew is fortunate to spend part of his week volunteering on organised dive outings with the team at Kennack Diving and Porthkerris, Cornwall.

The  vision for Dive Project Cornwall is simple – eliminate plastic pollution and protect the marine environment to save all life in our oceans for many future generations to enjoy and cherish.

Teenagers can become ‘Ocean Influencers’ with Dive Project Cornwall.

A Once-in-a-Lifetime Experience to Protect the Oceans

At the heart of Dive Project Cornwall is a competition for 400 lucky teenagers to win the experience of a lifetime; a 6-day, life-changing trip to Cornwall, where they will learn to scuba dive, enjoy outdoor adventures, take up beach-related activities and attend presentations from leading marine industry experts. The aim is for these teenagers to become PADI Open Water qualified and Dive Project Cornwall Ocean Influencers who positively engage, inspire and motivate the next generation to save our planet.

Scuba 2000 will be supporting this fantastic initiative by sponsoring 1 – 2 teenagers to take part in this unique adventure and experience of a lifetime.

“For a long time I have considered it should be the right of every child to walk on a beach and feel the sand between their toes. Dive Project Cornwall aims to give young people that experience and take it one step further; giving them sight of the amazing underwater world. Through their own appreciate of the wonders of the marine environment we will inspire thought as to how we will look after our beaches and oceans and preserve them for future generations to enjoy. The success of this lies in educating hundreds of thousands of young people today and we are thrilled to be able to launch a comprehensive introduction to the ocean and conservation for young people and adults alike, in the form of Dive Project Cornwall.”
