New interpretations of the Port Center concept are emerging worldwide

In the past weeks we have seen news portraying new models of Port Centers. In Southampton the 1851 trust, from the sailing team INEOS, has a space named STEM Crew HQ with a rich educational content to link the classroom to the maritime world, especially in sciences, technology, math and engineering. In Florida, the new Sea the World Storefront, from Marine Industry, will open next May, with an exhibition and activities to engage with students and raise awareness to maritime professions, investing on human capital and education. In Hamburg, the Discovery Dock opened in April, from private investors, that created this space to explore the port as an attraction, using advanced VR gadgets. Finally, we could also read that the port of Barcelona will open its Port Center in 2021, framed in the special plan Port Vell. These news confirm AIVP’s message, that citizen engagement, port culture and education are crucial for sustainable port-city relationships, and that Port Centers are a crucial tools for these purposes
