Work Package 5: Cruise & Sustainability

The main topics of WP 5 are environmental certification and energy efficiency for cruise ports, socio-economic impact of cruise and hinterland soft tourism.

“Cruise ships arrive in port with a really large number of passengers, and you want to show them the local attractions. But how do you arrange this in a way that not all of them are driving around by taxi, or to ensure that your most beautiful park or nature area isn’t ruined by too many visitors?”  Sebastian Doderer, Port of Hamburg, Cruise Gateway Lead Partner

The means of the 5th WP are conferences, studies a permanent working group and a best practice tour. WP 5 consists of Cruise Port Rotterdam as Lead and Port of Gothenburg as Deputy. In addition Bremerhaven, Kiel, Copenhagen, Shipbuilding Association and Hardangerfjord are participating.
