About us

Sea-Watch e.V. is a non-profit initiative dedicated to the civil sea rescue of
refugees. In view of the humanitarian disaster in the central Mediterranean, Sea-
Watch provides emergency aid, demands and at the same time forces the rescue
by the responsible European institutions and publicly stands up for legal escape
routes. We are politically and religiously independent and are financed
exclusively by donations.


E-Learning at Sea-Watch

In line with our HR development goals, we are developing blended learning
solutions for our volunteer and professional crew members. Since learning is best
achieved by actively doing what you are about to learn, we decided to include
action-oriented content and serious games in the e-learning components of this
training programme wherever useful and possible.

Content-wise, the training will cover things like extinguishing a fire on board or
launching a life-raft, through working safely on board, steering the ship to
procedures how to deal with crowds of people in a state of emergency or
situational awareness on the job.
