Oceans, Lakes & Rivers Protection
The OACM/SOTD program is unique in many ways. It takes the different segments from various aspects of the tourism industry and creates a solution that gives concrete, visible results in increasing the number of tons of non-degradable waste extracted from oceans, lakes, and rivers. The protection of oceans, lakes, and rivers is our most important and crucial task and responsibility, and we need to approach it with effective and direct action. All of life on this planet depends on our natural water resources and this growing global problem cannot be solved with conferences or speeches. To become more efficient on the global level, we need to unite even more countries to work closely together and learn from each other while acting directly. Only direct action will lead to our next measure which is to include scientists and research into the resolution of this problem in order to find other ways to live on this planet without creating more plastic waste, e.g. by using substitute materials in our daily life.
