Gozo commemorated World Oceans Day last Thursday with a series of underwater clean-ups which took place at several popular local beaches by Gozo Dive Centres.
The group had a tour of the Citadel later in the day and then the dive centres, together with a number of foreign journalists representing different prominent diving journals and portals, were hosted at a social gathering in the evening at a catering establishment within the Cittadella.
While the guests enjoyed their local food and wine they also had the opportunity to watch the 90 minute documentary `Plastic Ocean.’
This special event was organised by the Gozo Tourism Association, with the full support and collaboration of the Malta Tourism Authority and the Directorate for Tourism and Economic Development within the Ministry for Gozo.
The group of foreign journalists were hosted by MTA, Tauchernet and local dive shops in Gozo and Malta as part of the event ‘European Divers Meeting’ held between the 5th and 9th of June.
