Espo Award 2012 : a short list of ten ports
Denis Davoult represented AIVP for the first meeting of the jury for the Espo Award on societal integration in Brussels on 11th September 2012.
The 2012 edition is on the topic of Youth, a topic which AIVP is evidently very aware of, notably through its Port Center Network. 23 ports have posed their candidatures. A success for Espo, but also a wealth and a multiplicity of initiatives which particularly impressed the members of the jury. Obviously, for the ports youth of all ages, children as well as students, present a privileged target with one objective : to make them understand as early as possible the port world and to arouse vocations.
A pre-selection of 10 ports was made by the jury: Antwerp, Bremenports, Cartagena, Dover, Genoa, Marseille, Piraeus, Rotterdam, Santa Cruz de Tenerife et Venice. The winner will be announced in Brussels on 7 November next.
