A total of 1.148 students from 28 schools from all over the province of Castellón have participated in the ‘Know your Port’ programme set up by the Port Authority of Castellón. This scheme allows students to enjoy a guided tour of the interior of the port and to learn about the impact that the port has on the economy of the province and its surroundings.
During the the tour students learn about basic concepts connected to how the port functions, as well as the different types of goods and vessels which make use of the port’s facilities. They are also informed about measures that have been taken by the Port Authority to create a port that is both sustainable and respects the environment. In addition they are able to see the logistics services provided by the port.
The objective of the Port Authority’s ‘Know your Port’ scheme is to promote a good relationship between the port and the local population.
