AIVP outlines the Port Center concept in Dunkirk
14th February 2013: During a meeting of the Board of Dunkirk’s maritime museum, the Musée Portuaire, the AIVP set out the concept behind the ‘Port Center’. The concept represents a programme of social integration that encourages the main stakeholders of port cities to devise more educational initiatives to raise awareness of the port, its activities and its tasks.
Greta Marini’s presentation was followed by a debate on the pros and cons of setting up a Port Center. Numerous projects and a wide range of initiatives aimed at improving understanding of the modern port currently exist in Dunkirk. As the Musée Portuaire already welcomes a significant number of visitors, it could become the main entry point and lead orchestrator in increasing both the port’s visibility and the public’s awareness of it.
