Underwater Superhero Headquarters

Underwater Superhero Headquarters | ScubaObsessed | Scoop.it

The aim of the project is to establish a globally unique underwater research, education and outreach facility in the Vinkeveense Plassen, a freshwater lake area in The Netherlands.

 

The facility will serve as the international headquarters for real-life underwater superhero, Tik, and his fishy friend, Bubbles. Tik and Bubbles will encourage young people to discover, explore and protect our planet’s freshwater and marine ecosystems. They will inspire young people to change the world through action and enable them to follow their dreams.


A long-term goal of the project is for the underwater superhero headquarters to become an environmentally friendly and completely autonomous unit in terms of energy. This goal will be achieved by using off-grid renewable and alternative energy systems.


The project will empower our next generation to become philanthropic, proactive and compassionate stewards of our blue planet.

You have to think of this planet, really, as a water planet, not as a land planet.
It really is the heart and soul of what life is.
