Human Rights at Sea is delighted to welcome Seavision as a Supporting Entity
Ewen Macdonald, Director of Seavision said: “Seavision is a not for profit initiative to promote awareness of the maritime and marine sector amongst UK 11 to 22 year olds by way of education and career related activities. Lead supporters are the Royal Navy, Seafarers UK, Trinity House and the UK Chamber of Shipping. A strong believer in inclusiveness and affording opportunity for all, these values lie well with those of Human Rights at Sea, an organisation with which Seavision is proud to be associated. We wish HRAS continued success in their important work”.
David Hammond, Founder HRAS, said: “As Human Rights at Sea continues to evolve its international profile and reach, we are delighted to have developed national links with Seavision in order to support its valuable work providing awareness and education to the next generation of UK seafarers. HRAS will play its part in this on-going process and particularly in respect of awareness of the need for explicit understanding and application of human rights provisions in the maritime sector”.
Seavision is the national on-going campaign to enthuse the young people of today about the maritime opportunities of tomorrow. Awareness of, and interest in, the diversity of the maritime/marine sector is promoted through educational and maritime career related activities, for 11 to 22 year olds.
Research shows that few people understand how crucial the sea and the maritime sector are to modern life. Fewer still are aware of the vast range of diverse, interesting and exciting maritime activities and careers. The sector employs over 531,000 people directly and indirectly, contributing more than £26.5 billion each year to the UK economy.
Seavision works to bring together the maritime sector, to:
- support the development of education and careers activities by the sector
- raise awareness of the range of activities and careers available to young people
Seavision is honoured to have HRH The Princess Royal as its Patron supporting its work.
