The BEST WATERS project, co-funded by the European Union though the Erasmus+ Sport Programme, aims to identify green strategies for water sports in the European Union by collecting good practices about environmental sustainability in sport and then defining specific recommendations to apply such practices in water sports and promote active lifestyles and sustainable behaviours. The recommendations, based on the sustainable development goals of the United Nations, will be implemented through the coaches in the sports club involved in the project (ESC, VELAGO, FUERTE), improved if required, and disseminated among other European water sports organisations and relevant stakeholders, to promote active lifestyles and raise awareness about the importance of environmental protection in practicing water sports.
