AMA@IMO

On 2nd and 3rd March the student trip to London took place. The first morning was taken up by a visit to the International Maritime Organization, including the opportunity to view the opening session of the Sub-Committee on Ship Systems and Equipment. During lunch overlooking the River Thames and Houses of Parliament, students had the opportunity to meet Belgium’s representative to IMO (ir. Stefaan Verhallen) and to hear about his role in the organisation. In the afternoon, the party took a tour round the spectacular Lloyds building, visiting the trading floor with the famous Lutine Bell and the traditional boardroom on the top floor. On the second day, the group travelled by river to Greenwich to join a guided tour of the highlights of the National Maritime Museum. Following lunch and a walk up the hill to the Royal Observatory and the Greenwich meridian, it was time to head for the Eurostar and home.

The visit was organized by the Student Council in conjunction with Alison Noble (Maritime English) and was partly funded by STUVO. This year twenty students took part and staff Deirdre Luyckx and Marieke Uten joined Alison Noble in heading up the party. Thanks go to Dr. Rowan Van Schaeren and HZS for supporting the visit which benefits staff and students alike in learning about the international context of shipping.
