A day with Mt Agung Displaced People
In the east of Bali, Mount Agung - the volcanic mountain named in the Balinese legend of the Hindu God Pasupati - has been under constant surveillance since August 2017. In past days, a thick white smoke and ash has been spewing from the volcano and authorities are worried about an imminent eruption. Mt Agung last erupted in 1963, causing more than 1000 deaths. In order to prevent any such fatalities from occurring again, the Indonesian authorities arranged for more than 100,000 people to be evacuated from their homes within an area extending from 9 to 12km around the volcano.
Zen Harmony Diving
Zen Harmony Diving is a unique concept that seeks to revolutionize the world of diving through making us aware of the synergy between protecting the biodiversity of the oceanic world and enhancing human health. The world's oceans and seas are the lifeblood of our Earth, covering more than 70 percent of the planet's surface, driving weather, regulating temperature and ultimately supporting all living organisms. Policy makers and marine scientists as well as scuba divers worldwide have the responsibility to provide the credible knowledge on the polluting threats and status of the oceans such that protection and conservation measures can be implemented.
