Marking the beaches of our country is also a means of informing the citizens about their safety at sea and the activities that take place there. Safe Water Sports created the "Code and Signs of Marine and Sea Safety” that is most like the well-known highway code and signs. The Signs aiming at promoting basic safety rules at sea, in sports and in maritime activities and have been illustrated and easily recognizable with a single glance. The "signs" of the new Safety Code were created in collaboration with AKTO students.
This initiative, in addition to reinforcing safety and preventing accidents, also has a strong developmental character. It concerns tourism, the heavy industry of our country. Through such initiatives that do not cost a single euro to the public, since their construction can be funded by sponsors that Safe Water Sports is working on, we can greatly upgrade our country's image as a safe and quality tourist destination in thousands visitors who choose our beautiful beaches every year to spend some pleasant hours.
Already a number of Municipalities of our country have adopted this initiative. Nowadays, the Safe Water Sports signs are located on 6 beaches of the Municipality of Saronic Attica (A. Nikolaos Lagonissiou, Blue Coast, Saronida, Mavro Litari, Alykes Anavyssos and Palea Fokea) and 16 in the Municipality of Mykonos (P. Gialos, Panormos, Elia, Super paradise , Paradise, Paraga, Ornos, Kalafatis, Agia Anna, Psarrou, Agios Ioannis, Agrari, Ftelia, Lia, Agios Sostis, Kalo Livadi). Also, a large number of other Coastal Municipalities have expressed their interest for marking their beaches with our new Safe Waters Sports signs and code, proving that next summer this action will be extended to many municipalities of Greece, thus contributing to the general information and awareness of our society.
As a conclusion, we would like to mention that our wish is through this action to provide an illustrated presentation of the basic safety rules for swimming, beach activities and water sports and to develop a new culture to children and adults.
