UNICEF South Africa has launched "The Sport for the Environment and Climate Change programme".

I AM WATER believes in Ocean Conservation through transformative human ocean experience. Those who have opened their eyes underwater, those who have seen the beauty, the majesty, the great marine creatures of the world beneath the waves will learn to love and to protect! 

Our mission is to ignite a movement of blue minds across the planet, to facilitate physical and emotional connections to the aquatic environment, to build understanding of the interdependence of healthy humans and healthy oceans and to influence behaviours to protect our global seas.

​We feel especially passionate about working with under-resourced coastal communities where, despite living walking distance to the shoreline, we often find young people who have never seen the world just beneath the waves.
