Mega Event in the “Messe Wien” - Body Painting Event for the oceans!

It is 5 to 12 and more than ever the oceans and our lakes need our support. Almost every day, by social media channels, images and reports of our earth reach us, making us all shudder and sad.

The non-profit organization REEFCALENDAR likes to draw attention to this tragedy and the environmental disaster in the world's oceans and virtually all waters of our world and raise awareness. A good reason to support REEFCALENDAR!

For the 2018 project, more than 300 volunteers will be body-painted on-site to make Vienna the worlds center for “THE SHOW” for the seas and to produce the new cover of the REEFCALENDAR 2019. Last year REEFCALENDAR could crack with the largest body painting picture of world records.

Together with singers and dancers, the largest 3D bodypainting in the world is brought to life! With REEFCALENDAR - THE SHOW - Vienna will be the show for the seas on Saturday the 11th of August 2018. The registration for REEFCALENDAR – THE SHOW has begun!

Many volunteers have already registered! However, a few are still needed to be able to implement the show! Please have a look at the participants page.

Project REEFCALENDAR - A calendar encouraging to reflect the situation of the oceans

With the project REEFCALENDAR, the Austrian non-profit organization (with the same name) would like to draw attention to the tragedy of the oceans and the critical condition of coral reefs - in times when tourism and industry relentlessly deal with our natural resources.

The sea is not only one of the most important oxygen donors, it also houses a unbelievable variety of life. With the REEFCALENDAR, 12 international top photographers show the beauty of the maritime habitat, but also the impact of mass tourism and industry on this natural habitat.

Proceeds and donations to preserve the maritime ecosystem

In the first year (2016), all incoming money was used to support the construction of an artificial coral reef in the Maldives. In 2018, with the proceeds of the calendar sales and donations following the world-record in body-painting in 2017, an artificial reef was built on the Philippine island of Negros, whose natural reef was almost completely destroyed. The first REEFVILLAGE, consisting of a block of single coral baskets, now offers corals and marine life new habitat. More REEFVILLAGES are already being planned in affected regions and around the world. Details on REEFVILLAGE at
