This Work Package aims to increase environmental awareness among naval cadets and seafarers in Europe. It thereby contributes to sustainable use of the seas and oceans and compliance with environmental regulations for maritime transport by professionals working in the maritime industry.
The Work Package will also focus on the use of environmentally adapted technology to lower emissions to air and sea.
It includes a diversity of activities addressed to identify training best practices in greening maritime transport and to draw a roadmap for dissemination of those best practices to improve marine environmental awareness and training among seafarers in this field.
Workshop themes are environmental impacts of shipping and how to mitigate these, compliance and enforcement of existing regulations and the importance of training and the ‘human factor’ for sustainable sea transport. With focus on mitigation and adaptation, environmentally adapted technology will be discussed such as scrubbers, LNG as a fuel, environmentally adapted lubricants, ballast water techniques etc.
