Next edition,
from 18 to 20 October 2024

The International Congress on Drowning Prevention (CIPREA) is a benchmark debate forum in social awareness about aquatic and land safety.

Time is running out...

According to the World Health Organization, every hour in the world more than 40 people die by drowning, which means a total of 372,000 a year. Since 2015, more than 3,100 deaths from drowning in aquatic spaces have occurred in Spain, most of them preventable. These data show the need to join forces in the search for strategies that help prevent and reduce the number of deaths in the aquatic environment.

The most important european event on drowning prevention

The CIPREA is the most important conference in Europe in this sector and the second in the world, after the one organized every two years by the International Lifesaving Federation (ILS), which for three days meets experts, investigators, professionals and political authorities from all over the world to present and discuss the latest advances in drowning prevention, rescue, aquatic safety and sport, as well as future projects and lines of action with the ultimate goal of reducing the number of deaths or possible accidents caused by drowning.
