The Missions Charter of a Port Centre defines the essential challenges and objectives of any Port Centre. It has now been signed by seven port-cities which have a Port Centre or a Port Centre project: Antwerp Havencentrum Lillo, Genoa Port Centre, Le Havre Port Centre, Leghorn Port Centre, Ashdod Visitor Centre, the Port of Montreal and Guadeloupe Port Caraïbes (port authority).
The Missions Charter of a Port Centre aims to accompany all those who are interested in opening their ports to the public, making young people aware of port-related professions and activities, and developing the emergence of a living port-city culture.
