CONQUERING THE FEAR OF SWIMMING W/ “THE POWER OF SWIMMING” VR TRAINING PROGRAM
The background is a bit scary; One in five Swedish children can’t swim, despite the fact that they live in a land of lakes that is surrounded by sea.
Through VR training video, the Swedish Swimming Federation and E.ON introduces a group of children to three members of the Swedish swim team, who escort them into the water and help them to overcome their fears by taking a virtual plunge.
Later, the children are taken to a real pool to meet the same swimmers, who encourage them into the water where they play happily and begin to learn to swim for themselves.
The documentary film finishes by inviting viewers to eon.se/simma to order free VR goggles to use at home or find the nearest local swimming association.
