Gaining the commitment of citizens and community players for more sustainable development
An interview with Michelle Hundley – Vice President of Public Affairs – The Economic Alliance Houston Port Region
A Port Centre project is currently being studied at Houston. It is being run by the Maritime Museum, which is preparing to join AIVP’s Port Centre Network. Michelle Hundley presented the Port of Houston’s social and environmental integration projects at the AIVP 13th world conference at Nantes in 2012. Back in Houston, she proposed the idea of a Port Centre, which fascinated the port and the port community.
Since then, Michelle has joined the Economic Alliance as vice-president for public affairs, and she continues to follow the Port Centre project. The aim of the Economic Alliance is the economic and social development of the Houston maritime and industrial region; it also runs training and awareness projects relating to careers in ports and logistics.
Here is a detailed look at the different projects run by Economic Alliance, the Port of Houston, the Maritime Museum and other organisations working for better social and economic integration of the port into the life and the port region of Houston.
