The American Caribbean Maritime Foundation (ACMF), in association with the Caribbean Association of National Training Authorities, and CARICOM Youth Ambassadors, will launch the Maritime Linkup: Beyond Borders Webinars on the 19 August, with subsequent sessions on 9 and 23 September; and 7 and 21 October 2020. The five-part webinar series is free to students and educators. It focuses on connecting Caribbean youth with educational and professional opportunity in the maritime sector and blue economy.
