Safe Greece with the Greek Lifesaving Sports Association

Since 2014, the Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation has been supporting the “Safe Greece” project in Greece, initiated by the Greek Government due to high rates of drowning in the country.The lessons, prepared and taught by Dr Stathis Avramidis (International Swimming Hall of Fame honoree, lifesaving teacher at Athens University and an officer of the National Public Health Organisation), give children and adults the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the risks and to develop good safety habits in a water environment.In 2020, the Greek Lifesaving Sports Association (GLSA) took over the project. The GLSA, presided over by Dr Avramidis, is a new entity whose purpose is to promote water safety and lifesaving sport throughout the country. In its first 2 years of existence, the association obtained outstanding results – testimony to the passion and determination of its managers, highlighting the importance of water sports and offering hope for the future of lifesaving in the country.
