With up to 800,000 seafarers requiring some form of training or familiarisation by 2030 to operate the low- and zero-carbon ships of tomorrow, it is more urgent than ever for us all to come together – unions, employers, government – and debate what kind of future we want for our sector and its people. This book brings together many of voices who are critical to shaping a Just Transition for seafarers, which puts workers at the centre of plans to climate-proof jobs. For anyone interested in how far a sector can get when you begin to put people and planet first, I’d highly recommend they start by reading this book. It shows how collaboration on maritime decarbonization can help address the climate crisis as we chart a course of hope.
