Waterman’s Week Bali 2016, from the 1st to the 10th of July, is a week full of events through the Island. This is the 4th year of the event, which is part of the Non-Profit Organization R.O.L.E Foundation.
This time, instead of having only one night of awards to the Watermen and Waterwomen in Bali, the Role Foundation team, together with different partners are organizing a full week of events to raise awareness about the whole Indonesia waste problem.
Indonesia is the 4th most populated Country in the World, being the 2nd in the rank of mismanaged plastic waste. That’s 3.2 mt/year of plastic that goes to the ocean. In Bali, that’s 680 cubic meters of plastic garbage a day. That’s about a 14-story building!
Waterman’s Week Bali, through water sports and water related events is here to make some noise about waste problem and how we want to keep our oceans clean!
