WHAT WE DO
_______

.

UGI creates, leads and promotes:

RESTORATION OF THE MARINE ECOSYSTEMS
_______

.

Nature- and Biomimetic-based solutions & projects

.

Nature is constantly reacting to human activity. Day by day, this reaction becomes more severe as manifested by the crises of climate change and unprecedented biodiversity loss, and the ensuing secondary effects such as the SARS-Covid-2 pandemic. Yet at the same time, nature provides a whole palette of solutions to the global problems. Based on this, UGI has created a model capable of adapting to ocean and coastal conditions, where restoration and regeneration measures are needed.

SUSTAINABLE & REGENERATIVE COASTAL DESTINATIONS
_______

.

An innovative, pioneering tourism product inspired by the Ocean

.

UGI has created and developed Underwater Gardens Parks. A new coastal tourism product that is sustainable and regenerative. Science, sports, technology, education and art are combined so that visitors can enjoy themselves and experience unique and memorable moments of interaction with the Ocean and nature.

NATURE INSPIRED ARCHITECTURE
_______

.

A new generation of unique and astounding underwater landscapes for divers

.

At UGI, as seafloor gardners, we create and develop new and inspiring underwater landscapes: the Sea Gardens. Their landscape design offers divers the next generation of underwater experience. These exceptional spaces are accessible to all levels of diving and all ages.

A UNIQUE & INNOVATIVE INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITY
_______

.

A Business Model with positive impact on the environment

.

UGI has developed a business model that promotes the collaboration between the world of finance and ecology. The aim is to make the regeneration of marine life lucrative whilst at the same time raising awareness on the importance of the Ocean. The creation and construction of Underwater Gardens Parks, a sustainable, unique and pioneering tourist destination, brings this goal to fruition.

COOPERATION, INTEGRATION & EXCELLENCE
_______

.

An International network of experts

.

The global challenges we face are so enormous that we cannot resolve them through independent and isolated actions. Neither will acting out of self-interest or having an exclusively competitive mindset yield adequate solutions. For this reason, UGI depends on a valuable network of international experts that represent different areas of relevant expertise. Their cooperation ensures a standard of excellence that permeates all the projects we develop.

AWARENESS-RAISING & OCEAN PROTECTION PROJECTS
_______

Raising consciousness and educating through recreation and entertainment

.

Our Underwater Gardens Parks are to be conceived as centers of conscience- and awareness-raising on the significance of the Ocean´s health. Through leisure, sport, science, art and recreation the visitors acquire – in a playful manner – a deep understanding of the value of the Ocean, of life, of natural resources, and how to be more respectful towards the environment.

ACTIVE, INNOVATIVE & INTEGRATIVE RESEARCH
_______

Advancing scientific knowledge as well as long-term independent research

.

At UGI we believe that active, innovative and integrative research, guided by a variety of social actors (scientific community), is fundamental in finding the answers to our global problems. From a scientific standpoint, our Underwater Gardens Park´s model is a monitoring station for climate change, which constantly collects and analyses key health factors of the local sea, thus contributing with data and knowledge to the global efforts.

SOLUTIONS FOR MARINE LIFE REGENERATION
_______

In-house developed technologies and R&D

.

Since 2010, Underwater Gardens International has been developing the reefhopper® design protocol in order to specifically respond to the marine life regeneration needs in each of our projects.

We provide a responsible business model

For decades governments from around the globe have signed important agreements and agendas in an attempt to face global challenges. It is now more clear than ever that we urgently need to build stronger bridges between sustainable development policies and the private sector activities.

UGI is dedicated to strengthening this relationship by achieving a responsible business model that provides technical solutions and research, as well as generating social benefits and sustainable economic investment, thus directly contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals of the UN, UNFCCC or CBC. UGI also supports local goals and initiatives that are focused on creating a sustainable world.

CONSTANT MONITORING OF THE OCEAN
_______

Scientific knowledge and long-term research

.

At UGI we believe that active, innovative and integrative research, guided by a variety of social actors (scientific community), is fundamental in finding the answers to our global problems.

From a scientific standpoint, our project of Underwater Gardens, is itself a monitoring station for climate change which constantly collects and analyses key health factors of the local sea. Data is continuously generated by the sensorization technologies on the one hand and the participation of the visitors on the other. This data is managed by a scientific laboratory located at the Park that participates in the international debate and the search for new solutions.

REESTABLISHING THE NATURAL BALANCE
_______

We promote solutions for marine life regeneration

.

Our behaviour as human beings is affecting how the planet is behaving (climatically and biologically). The natural balance of the Earth is being altered, thus putting our life on this planet at risk.

The Ocean is essential for the regulation of the climate and fundamental for all life.

We at UGI, are committed to responding to these global challenges. We offer solutions that regenerate marine life and therefore favor the reestablishment of the natural balance that this planet needs.
