The RNLI ‘Respect the Water’ campaign warned people about the dangers of Britain’s coastline. But because 50% of people who drown each year never intended to get wet in the first place, the message wasn’t working.
MISSION Agency, krow London, needed to stop warning people about water and start giving them the skills to save their life.
Instinctively, people fight to survive when they’re in trouble in the water. But water survival skills are counter-intuitive.
krow London created a campaign that teaches people to fight their instinct, not the water; they have to ‘FLOAT TO LIVE’.
Over the past two years, the campaign message has helped to save 21 people from drowning.
