The aim of the conference will be to exchange experience and to familiarise participants with the latest developments in underwater research, with particular emphasis on the methods used, the principles of water monitoring and environmental education. These issues are important due to the increasing involvement of divers in underwater research, especially for the non-invasive exploration of water ecosystems valuable in terms of nature (e.g. national parks, nature reserves, Natura 2000 areas).

During the conference, training workshops will be organised, where it will be possible to improve one’s diving qualifications and obtain the titles of Ecologist Diver I and II degree and Extractor Diver. The trainings will be conducted by qualified instructors with many years of experience, including in conducting scientific work.
