Shipping sails into the classroom

[ July 10, 2019   //   ]

Maritime Minister Nusrat Ghani has announced £40,000 of funding for expanding the Why Shipping Matters schools programme and extend it to secondary schools, as part of the Maritime 2050 programme. The lessons, developed by the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers, aim to raise awareness of the maritime sector and the importance of shipping. Pupils will learn how to make a compass and be taught how they allow vessels to navigate around the world as well as understanding the values of commodities that are shipped across the globe.
