Young people up to the age of 40 who work in the wider field of shipping and maritime offshore industry have the opportunity to participate as members or as administration of the association.
The aims of the association are:
• To build a strong network, promote dialogue and cooperation between its members and the wider maritime community, government agencies and organizations dealing with maritime issues in Cyprus and abroad.
• To encourage members to develop and implement actions, initiatives, exchange of information and experiences in order to promote and develop the shipping industry in Cyprus and to develop as young professionals in the global maritime community.
• To provide continuous education and training to its members in the field of shipping and maritime industry as well as to develop the interest of the younger generation for environmental developments, innovation and entrepreneurship.
From 2012 until today YoungShip Cyprus has conducted many social events and has presented a series of free seminars covering a variety of topics, including current and future trends in shipping as well as career advice and soft skill development.
