Drowning is still a serious and huge problem in Europe. More than 23.000 people die every year in the water. Anyone can drown – no one should! We can all take action to end drowning. Everybody can do something to prevent drowning!

The International Lifesaving Federation of Europe ILSE offered on the occasion of the 2022 World Drowning Prevention Day on July 25th. The webinar was organised as a zoom webinar.
