During the World Oceans Day event, UN Secretary-General, António Guterres, highlighted the importance of a healthy and sustainable marine environment, while also he discussed that gender equality plays an important role in attempts of restoring and protecting the planet’s ocean.
On the sidelines of the Empowering Women in the Maritime Community Conference in early April, the World Maritime University (WMU) and the Government of Canada jointly announced a major research project on the theme ‘Empowering Women for the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development’.
Increased diversity awareness and empowerment of women in the maritime world is gaining ground lately with relevant events being held and interesting issues toping their agendas. On top of that, the theme of World Maritime Day 2019 is dedicated to empowering women in the maritime community.
