On Tuesday, May 10, the workshop “3R Boat” took place at the 1st Vocational School of Didymoteicho “Eugene Eugenides ” aiming to disseminate the results of the action plan implemented in the framework of the program “Vocational Schools: A new beginning “.

The President of the Eugenides Foundation and ΙΜΟ Goodwill Ambassador in Greece, Mr. Leonidas Dimitriadis-Evgenidis, addressed the conference online. After greeting the competent teachers and the school students, he stressed the value of the maritime profession and its prospects, the necessity of creating a maritime sector in the Vocational Schools of Thrace, a place which has traditionally offered many seafarers to the seafaring family, and the importance of attracting young people to the maritime professions in a proper manner.

He mentioned, “at a time when interest in the seafaring profession comes mainly through family and the kind words of one’s social circle, it is worth promoting the main characteristics of the seafaring profession, which are based entirely on meritocracy and is a passport to a better life”.
