Planning for Enviro Officer course

BELGIUM: European Boating Industry (EBI), together with the German Ocean Foundation, Sea Teach, the National Technical University of Athens, the German Marine Federation (BVWW) and Frederick University, is developing the EnviroNaut project to create the first ever environmental qualification for the nautical tourism sector.

The curricula will respond to targets set by the European Green Deal and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. It aims to sustainably manage recreational boating and nautical tourism to become a means of protecting marina and coastal ecosystems.
Over the next two years, EnviroNaut partners will develop a course for an Environmental Officer qualification. It will be available online, free and accessible to marinas, water sports companies, skipper services, nautical schools, other training institutions and charter companies.
EBI secretary-general, Philip Easthill, comments: “The EnviroNaut project will be a game-changer for the industry. The Environmental Officer qualification will take sustainability to a whole new level for nautical tourism companies.”
