Safe Water Sports Educational Program at schools

Safe Water Sports is a non-profit organization founded in 2015 with the interest of providing information and raising awareness to the general public on safety matters related to recreational water activities and water sports with great emphasis on safety standards and the prevention of drownings and sea-based accidents.

Safe Water Sports, during quarantine time period, created a series of online, interactive and educational games that children and schools could play in order to learn about the safety rules.

Additionally, from November 2020, the Organization will organize a unique educational, digital-based and entertaining interactive program at the premises of the Organization (11B Konitsis Str, Maroussi, 15125, Athens) in order to educate-inform primary school students on issues related to safety in the sea and in water sports. Students are engaged in using technology through a series of games in order to have a greater understanding of the basic safety guidelines in the sea. 

A great success is that the educational program of Safe Water Sports has been included to the ''Skills Workshops'' by the Ministry of Education. It is about a program about safety at sea that has been added to the official curriculum for elementary schools in Greece.

The educational program "Safety at sea, in water sports and in swimming pool" has been included in the section: Live better - Live well ------> Self-care, Safety and Prevention, Road safety and addresses to students of 2nd grade-6th grade.
According to the Ministry of Education, Skills Workshops, are introduced to 218 pilot schools (click here to see the list of schools) during the mandatory, weekly schedule starting in September 2020. The main goal is to provide students with life skills, mild skills and digital literacy skills. It is expected that during the period of 2021-2022, these workshops will be available throughout all schools in Greece. From now on, Safe Water Sports educational program is official as it is suggested by the Ministry of Education itself. Teachers will attend seminars that will take place on specific dates regarding the teaching method to students. 
The Founding Donour of the educational program of Safe Water Sports is Stavros Niarchos Foundation.
