THE PORT OF VIGO WILL COLLABORATE WITH THE BLUE EDUCATION ASSOCIATION TO PROMOTE BLUE TRAINING

This was confirmed by the President of the Port Authority of Vigo, Carlos Botana, after meeting this morning with the Secretary-General of the Association, Federico Fernández, and the President of the Spanish Maritime Institute, Mercedes Pardo. In the meeting, Gerardo González, Head of Project Division of the Port Authority, also participated, and both parties have decided to join forces to present a joint educational project that allows aligning current demand with existing offerings through training courses.

Likewise, the two entities will combine efforts in various educational initiatives with schools in the Vigo Area, such as those carried out by the Port of Vigo with guided visits to the "Nautilus" underwater observatory and the historic ship "Hidria Segundo," or those promoted by the Association, such as the construction of cardboard boats by the children themselves. An exciting activity that goes beyond the construction of vessels with recycled material, as it embodies fundamental values such as teamwork, camaraderie, and the pursuit of a shared goal.

At the end of the spring of 2024, the boats will be launched into the water in a joint and simultaneous launching throughout Spain, symbolizing the vision of the sea as an inexhaustible source of personal and professional growth for the future. Finally, the Port Authority of Vigo and Blue Education will seek synergies to enhance the Camino de Santiago, as the association travels the French Way by sea, and from the Port, the Traslatio route is promoted. The goal is to unite both initiatives.
