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.
During summer time, the organization will create a series of interactive educational videos regarding safety at sea and in watewr sports where children have to decide how the story continues. Basically, they will decise the right path or the wrong path and they will have the ability to watch what happens when they choose the wrong one.
Through this way, believe that videos will intrigue children's mind in order to learn the basic safety rules at sea. These videos will be part of the educational program for high-schools and we plan to create these videos in english at some point so they go internationally.
Additionally, the first report regarding incidents in Greece from 2017-2020 is officially published in cooperation with the Ministry of Maritime, the Port police and Greek police. This is the first time that Greece has statistical information regarding drownings and sea based accidents.
