Another academic year has come to a close and the educational program ADOPT A SHIP has dropped anchor for a short while !
On Tuesday June 22nd, 2021 at 6pm the PROJECT CONNECT team met with the Adopt-A- Ship partners, representatives of shipping companies and the educators who participate in the program. The meeting was held virtually due to covid19 mobility restrictions.
PROJECT CONNECT representatives shared information about the progress of the Adopt A Ship Program in the last three years of its establishment in Greece, they advised of the development plans for the upcoming year and expressed their gratitude to the educators, the Captains and representatives of shipping companies for the way they have so eloquently managed the program's needs and the passion they have shown for the initiative from the onset, each from his/her own side. In addition, PROJECT CONNECT representatives requested the support of shipping firms to include more of their vessels in the Adopt s Ship Program.
