YMP Forum events

The Young Maritime Professionals Forum provides guidance to Nautilus Council on the challenges facing young people in the shipping industry and on the issues that matter to them.

'A good platform for younger members to discuss our specific issues, and understand how Nautilus fits into the wider Union movement'  a Nautilus Young Maritime Professional member's perspective on last year's GFTU festival.

The first YMP forum of 2017 coincides with the renamed New Generation Festival for young workers organised annually by the General Federation of Trade Unions (GFTU).

In particular, the Nautilus Forum provides an opportunity for young members to engage in discussions on the specific challenges facing young workers in the maritime profession; on how to promote the maritime career to young people; to identify the organising needs of young members and to encourage their participation in the Union’s activities; and to provide guidance to the Council on these issues. 

Find out more about the YMP Forum in the Who we are section. Members can read minutes from forum meetings in the membership section and find out how to get involved.

Open to all young members (UK, NL, CH).
