Vodafone Foundation returns to Portugal’s beaches with awareness campaigns

July 10, 2017
The Vodafone Portugal Foundation’s “Champions’ Summer” campaign is taking place all over Portugal in partnership with the Directorate-General of the National Maritime Authority and the Portuguese Lifeboat Institution.

Through to 15 August, 29 beaches in Portugal will be the scene of various awareness events throughout the summer aimed at children and teenagers, covering safety, environment and accessibility.

Various activities are being organised such as games illustrating the risks caused by carelessness on the beaches, and information is being given about safe behaviour on beaches through simple and fun educational games.

As part of the Healthy Beaches programme, over 350 campaigns have been organised in the last eleven years, directly involving around 300,000 children and teenagers. Also during this period, the programme has covered a total of 185 beaches, where over 700 rescues and more than 1,100 assistance actions were made with equipment such as jet skis and 4×4 rescue vehicles donated by the Vodafone Foundation. These initiatives, like the Champions’ Summer campaign, have contributed to reducing the number of accidents on bathing beaches.
