Sail Training International Annual Conference
November 16, 2020 @ 8:00 am - November 26, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
NAMEPA Education and Outreach Director, Lisa Piastuch, is a member of the Sail Training International’s Blue Flag Internal Panel, which functions with the support and approval of the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE). The panel’s task is to evaluate vessel annual applications for the Blue Flag Certification reviewing a series of environmental, education and safety-related standards each vessel must meet and maintain. The panel forwards its recommendations to an international jury set up by the FEE for approval of each vessel and awarding of the Blue Flag.
As part of Sail Training International’s annual conference, being held virtually from November 16-26, the Blue Flag Panel recorded a roundtable discussion on the marine environment, the value of the Blue Flag to ships and recommendations as the program continues to develop.
