CommUNITY Day 2021
GUE CommUNITY Day 2021
September 18-19, 2021
Join us for our second annual CommUNITY Day! GUE communities around the world will gather together on the same weekend to celebrate our love for diving. It doesn’t matter where you’re located or what time zone you are in, you will feel part of the worldwide GUE community. Diving has the power to unite us all.
We encourage each GUE community (no matter the size) to host a dive day or community event (COVID responsibly) where they photograph and vlog their day above and below the water. ALL divers are invited to join us!
We will be doing two live streams from GUE HQ on Saturday, the 18th, to showcase some of the communities participating, host a Q&A, discuss relevant topics, and make a few announcements. You can join us at 6AM UTC and 12PM UTC. We will also be hosting a panel discussion on "The Importance of Community Building" on Sunday September 19th at 2PM UTC. Join Mark Messersmith, David Rhea, and Jarrod Jablonski for a discussion and Q&A on how communities have shaped GUE and GUE Project diving. We will be sharing our global community events all weekend on our page for everyone to follow along.
How To Participate as a community:
- Host an event, or dive with your local community (please follow your local guidelines and be COVID responsible).
- Share your team’s photos using the hashtag #GUEUnityDay21 and/or tagging @GUEhq on Facebook and Instagram.
- Participate in the live stream by logging in with your team from your event. Make sure to register for a spot in the live stream in advance.
- Submit a video introducing your community in advance (these are a max of 1 min long.)
How to participate as a brand, dive center, or project:
- Attend the live stream and give a presentation on a product, service, or subject.
- Encourage your audience/customers to participate in an event near them.
- Host an event.
