Contship’s PortoLab agenda ready for September 2018-2019

Sustainability is the focus for this year’s edition of the annual initiative, which gives children in various Italian port cities the opportunity to discover the world of the port and maritime activity. Through an account relating the story of an object – in this case, a printer – the children learn about the different sustainable development issues to do with transport and the logistics chain, along with the sometimes difficult choices to be made in order to act responsibly for our environment and for the planet. Since the Contship agenda was created in 2006, over 130,000 copies have been distributed with the support of various Port Authorities and public and private sector organisations.
