On Tuesday, 31 Οctober 2017, Dr George Gratsos, Chairman of the Hellenic Marine Environment Protection Association – HELMEPA and Mrs Ioanna Bissia, Publisher of Gratia Publications, signed a Memorandum of Cooperation at HELMEPA’s offices. 

The aim of the Memorandum is to further develop the cooperation between the two parties towards enhancing environmental awareness and a spirit of safety at sea among the human element in the Greek shipping community, with a focus on the younger generations, by use of all adequate means of information and publicity. 

Such means will include organizing awareness raising activities, recognizing and projecting achievements in pollution prevention by individuals or organizations, projecting achievements of the contemporary shipping industry and the potential of engaging in marine professions, as well as the information of youth on marine science and technological developments for the sustainable management of marine resources. 

This cooperation has actually already started with the special feature on HELMEPA’s 35th anniversary, in the June 2017 issue of the “NAFTIKA CHRONIKA” (Shipping Chronicles) magazine and the recent informative Seminar organized jointly with Isalos.net for students of University maritime departments and Merchant Marine Academies, at the “Aikaterini Laskaridi” Foundation.
