Successful first Port Endeavor gameplay in French

On 16 June Port Endeavor was used for the training of twenty port managers from West African ports (Togo, Mauritania, Guinea, Gabon, Ivory Coast, Cameroon) and the Port of Nantes Saint-Nazaire as part of a dedicated TrainForTrade programme held in Nantes, France. This was the first time that a Port Endeavor session took place in French, building further on the cooperation between IAPH and the UNCTAD TrainForTrade programme. The session was co-hosted by TrainForTrade chief of human resources development Mark Assaf and IAPH technical director Antonis Michail. A great time was had by all participants who were very positive in their feedback during the debriefing session after the game. TrainForTrade is the main global partner of IAPH for the game, together with IAPH associate member APEC Port Training. Port Endeavor is designed to increase awareness of port colleagues and the wider port communities on how ports integrate the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into their business, using real examples of the 240+ projects from the IAPH World Ports Sustainability Program. The game is currently available in English, French and Spanish. If you are interested in learning more about Port Endeavor, you can get in touch with Antonis Michail. Antonis was recently interviewed about the scope and achievements of the World Ports Sustainability Program for Vaisala, a company specialised in climate mitigation and adaptation. You can read the interview here.
