    • Wellness, understanding the pool as an irreplaceable area for leisure, entertainment and fun, especially for families, and as a space for relaxation and sensory pleasure.
    • Health, for the benefits of swimming as a sport, physical activity for all ages, and therapeutic functionality for people with special needs, rehabilitation, and muscle strengthening.
    • And community, as a place of collective meeting and relationship in diversity.
