Το Ελληνικό παράρτημα

 

Αποτελεί τον συνδετικό κρίκο της Ελλάδας με τον διεθνή οργανισμό του Nautical Institute, που εδρεύει στο Λονδίνο.

Ιδρύθηκε πριν από μερικές δεκαετίες από την εξαίρετη πρωτοβουλία δυο Ιρλανδών και του Βρετανού Cpt. Malcolm, όμως δεν κατάφερε να εγκαθιδρυθεί στην Ελληνική επικράτεια καθώς του έλειπε ένα βασικό στοιχείο: Ελληνικά μέλη. Μετά από έναν “λήθαργο” 30+ ετών, τα μέλη του Ινστιτούτου συγκεντρώθηκαν στις 4 Μαΐου 2016 και από τότε το Ελληνικό παράρτημα ξεκίνησε εκ νέου την λειτουργία του.

Στις δραστηριότητες του συγκαταλέγονται η διοργάνωση ημερίδων και ομιλιών σε Α.Ε.Ν. και εκπαιδευτικά ιδρύματα, η συζήτηση σχετικά με ναυτιλιακά θέματα που απασχολούν την ναυτική και ναυτιλιακή κοινότητα και η συλλογική αντιμετώπιση προβλημάτων που αντιμετωπίζουν τα Ελληνικά μέλη του Ινστιτούτου.

For establishing a national branch of the Nautical Institute in Greece

The Hellenic Branch of the Nautical Institute has been formed in Athens by members of the Institute to enable them to forgather and to discuss various matters of interest with regard to the need to improve their knowledge and views and for the better and safer management of the merchant fleet.

By belonging to the Nautical Institute and by taking an active interest in matters of concern to merchant shipping, members will not only hope to improve their knowledge and understanding of shipping issues, to support their own career development, and to have their individually and jointly held views reviewed and used as a basis for further consideration through the Hellenic Branch and the Institute’s headquarters.

It is well recognised that the Nautical Institute, through its world wide activity, is a respected and established channel through which master mariners can express their concerns that the Institute can then develop through its well-established connections with the influential international and national organisations that shape the regulation and management of merchant shipping.

Furthermore by belonging to and by participating in the affairs of their local Branch of the Institute, individual members can develop and review their own ideas. And its has to be recognised that, as the Hellenic shipping business is one of the most influential in world shipping, there is surely a need for the Greek master mariner to be heard on the world stage where his views can be reviewed and considered

As the business and practice of shipping is under continuous development, at an ever accelerating rate of change, the need for the ship masters’ considered views to be recorded and heard, where they can have due influence, is only too apparent. And the size of the Greek managed merchant fleet means its masters have the experience and influence for their views to be taken into account. They should be heard.
