This year, the annual price awarded by ESPO was devoted to the commitment of ports to promoting artistic and cultural projects in their communities. The project of the Port of Guadeloupe, entitled Port’Art, is intended to be broad and diverse. It will enable a large percentage of the island’s population to discover port territories through art and history, and also raise awareness among young people through artistic creations produced jointly with local schools.
The conference has brought together more than 150 professionals from the port world, many of whom are experts in the environment and sustainable development. The opening session was followed by a workshop on port-city integration, moderated by the AIVP strategic adviser on the integration of ports with society.
Apart from the need to introduce strategies to reduce the environmental impact of port activities, the workshop stressed the importance of maintaining contact with all the stakeholders.
