FINA and Myrtha combine to launch global ‘Pools for All’ initiative
World swimming governing body FINA has joined with Myrtha Pools and Spain-based Pujol Arquitectura to launch ‘Pools for All’, an initiative to develop truly sustainable aquatic centres around the world.
The initiative aims to present standardised tools for the worldwide design, construction and operation of a complete range of sustainable aquatic facilities compliant with the regulations of its different aquatic disciplines.
Launched during the 4th FINA World Aquatics Convention in Windsor, Canada in December last year, one of the aims of the program is to develop different standardised solutions that are highly efficient, financially self-sustaining, with minimal impact on the environment and energy consumption throughout the life of the venue.
The project suggests five categories of aquatic centres, able to host events, competitions and championships at different levels and age groups in accordance with FINA (Fédération Internationale de NAtation) and national Federation requirements, while at the same time being capable of community and recreational activities.
In the last few years, FINA has increased its commitment, giving a huge contribution to the improvement of aquatic facilities, with the goal of making them more responsive to the needs of swimmers and communities.
Pools for All suggests different standardised solutions for the completion and the proper operation of aquatic facilities aiming to create designs not only compliant with swimming discipline norms but to also be sustainable considering three main dimensions: profits, social and environment.
