To learn how to swim
Since 1978, it has been possible to have one's swimming level certified with the help of a 'Seepferdchen Abzeichen' (engl.: seahorse badge). It is usually acquired by children who have only recently started swimming. Due to the Corona pandemic, swimming pools were closed for a long time and many children had no opportunity to learn how to swim or to improve their already existing swimming skills. Even though swimming courses can now take place again, it remains questionable whether the already increasing number of non-swimmers can be counteracted.
