Safe Water Sports Actions for 2021
Students at school with our educational program
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.
Οne of our latest mission goals is that given the fact that the Organization has already created an educational program for primary school students, approved by the Ministry of Education in Greece and Cyprus, it has also created an educational program for the high-school students where they will learn the basic safety rules in water sports and at sea through more interactive and technologically based activities.
The primary educational program we have created is currently being translated in French too and recently we had a virtual presentation to teachers in French schools and in France too, discussing about the activities of the program, as we have signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the French Embassy and the French Institute, as we do with the British Embassy too.
Additionally, in the following months the Organization will launch a statistical report in collaboration with the Ministry of Shipping and the Port Police that includes information full in details regarding drownings and accidents at sea and inland water such as lakes, rivers, swimming pools etc.Based on our results, on average 339 people lose their lives each year while doing an activity at sea or inland water.
Therefore, we do believe that education is crucial not only for young ages but also for adolescents who start enjoying water sports.
