Loucas Fourlas, Member of the European Parliament, hosted the event to discuss saving 100,000 additional lives each year by increasing cardiopulmonary resuscitation rates across Europe. Roberta Metsola, President of the European Parliament gave the opening statement through a video message.
Further, Loucas Fourlas, Member of the European Parliament, says, “all you need is two hands and the guidance of ERC to save lives. We need to enhance our European education systems. Raise awareness is the first step to any change”.
"It is now time to intensify our efforts together with the European Parliament to teach schoolchildren how to do CPR. Together we will save 100.000 lives and more in Europe, every year” says Prof. Dr. Koen Monsieurs, ERC Chair.
