I CAN SAVE A LIFE project aims to train children to life saving techniques with the ambition to save more lives. This project was launched in October 2015 on the occasion of CARDIOSTIM-EHRA EUROPACE 2016, with the support of the city of Nice, its police officers and the charity association 20 000 Vies as the official partner.



20 000 Vies: 20,000 lives
Everything started from an observation: 20,000 lives could be saved every year if people knew the emergency life-saving techniques.
That is why, in 2008, Claude Mariottini, interventional cardiologist and heart rhythm specialist, Philippe Soussi, lawyer and deputy mayor of the town of Nice and Ginette Rinaldi, wife of the actor Gérard Rinaldi, created this association.

The aims of 20 000 Vies are to:

  • Promote the use of defibrillators to heighten public awareness of life-saving actions
  • Participate in the financing of programs to fight sudden cardiac arrest
  • Organize trainings in emergency life-saving techniques in schools with children in the city of Nice

Our goal, with the collaboration of the City of Nice and the association 20 000 vies is to have more people trained to practise life saving techniques, focusing on young targets because young people will be sensitive to life assistance for the rest of their life when trained early. And one day, they might really save a life.
