Marine Environmental Awareness Course

The latest Marine Environment Awareness Course, held on the island of Texel in The Netherlands was followed by Ms. Jacqueline Oud, our graduate student currently working on the development of a green certificate for shortsea shipping.Together with over 45 future maritime officers and 2 professionals she participated in the 4 day course.

During these four days, lectures were given covering different sources of marine pollution and their impact on the marine environment. This, together with field trips, provided the students with a good understanding of the marine environment and their impact on it. The interaction between the professionals and the future marine officers resulted in numerous discussions and contributed to a better understanding from both sides.

Overall the course was considered very worthwhile and will hopefully result in more environmentally aware maritime officers in the future.
