This unit is based on the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) Model Course titled
'Marine Environmental Awareness'. The unit informs participants of the complexity diversity and
functional significance of marine life and how this environment can be adversely impacted by
industrial and transport technologies. This unit aims to create a general understanding of the
importance of maritime industry regulatory frameworks, the roles of major industry players
and the need for compliance with IMO environmental protection Protocols and Conventions.
The leadership role undertaken in protecting environments from pollution, through sound and
sustainable shipping practices is highlighted.
