ANNOUNCEMENT: Youth Poster Contest, “Wind Ship – The Future” Launch

8 June, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am BST

The Youth Poster Contest, with the theme of “Wind Ship – The Future” will launch it’s public voting campaign on World Ocean Day. We will have a virtual launch event with a presentation about the exciting wind propulsion developments in shipping by the Secretary General of the International Windship Association, interviews with a number of select jury members about sustainable shipping and the contribution that can make to help regenerate our marine environment. We feel that this poster contest is an inspiring way to get young people engaged in the decarbonisation work underway in commercial shipping but also in the wider oceans and climate agenda through the very visual lens of wind propulsion.

Winners of the contest will be announced just ahead of the critical International Maritime Organisation (IMO) final negotiations for the decarbonisation targets and strategy for the shipping industry in early July.
