The Pays de la Loire Region has teamed up with Solutions&Co, the Pays de la Loire economic development agency and the Pays de la Loire Olympic and Sports Regional Committee (CROS) to develop new concepts for water-based products and services.

The CROS des Pays de la Loire has developed two concepts based on health and togetherness through water-based activities (SANA) with a view to:

– Promoting exercise and sports as a fundamental component of health and well-being for all throughout life. Thus, a regional “Health Sport” label has been set up, allowing water sports facilities to promote products adapted to this public health objective.

– Improve the support provided to people with disabilities using the same means and with able-bodied people with family or friends!
