At the Opening Oceans Conference, organised by NOR Shipping, I met with Paul Holthus, CEO of the World Ocean Council, WOC, who was one of the keynote speakers. Paul founded WOC when he saw that shipping and the ocean environment are both inseparably linked, but with the former having a dramatic effect on the latter.
Listen to Paul speaking about how the Young Ocean Professional network works, through referrals and introductions and how this network is growing. More than 35,000 volunteers are collaborating to reach the SDG:s and now WOC is also focussing on female leadership, working together with Women’s International Shipping & Trading Association, WISTA, amongst others.
What do you think when listening to Paul? I am interested in hearing your view, I am @lenagothberg in all social media channels, or you can make a comment below.
Thank you for listening.
