PADI Member Forum to commence at Furaveri Resort & Spa

Furaveri Resort & Spa will see the commencement of a four-day PADI Member Forum from 15th-18th September. This is a one of a kind ventures by PADI in association with Dive Club and Furaveri Maldives.

Through this event, the organizations aim to educate and encourage the importance of “environmental health” by keeping our surroundings clean and free of debris.


The event will begin on 15th September at Furaveri Maldives where all participants will gather for a networking evening. All interested participants can take part in the dives during the day. Fun and educative activities have been lined up during this four-day event including a visit to a local island to conduct environmental and conservation talks at a school, followed by a beach or island clean up.

The forum will also see certified divers assisting in collecting underwater debris and posting the report findings to Project AWARE. There will also be a theory class prior to the dive after-which they will be provided with a certification upon completion of this course.

The last day, 18th September will be Project AWARE specialty day where all the participants are invited (divers and non-divers as well as children) for a powerpoint presentation and a networking evening.

Project AWARE is an environmental ethic initiated by the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI®) in the late 80’s. The initiative aims to inspire, inform and provide the tools needed to engage and connect individuals, governments, NGOS, and businesses who share values and vision for a clean, healthy ocean.
