Oct. 21st, ZOOM meeting: Sustainability in shipping and the decade ahead.

Presented by Carleen Lyden Walker of the North American Marine Environment Protection Association.

The maritime world is entering the “Fourth Industrial Revolution“, with disruptors like automation and digitalization joining forces with impending regulations to create profound change in the industry. This unprecedented convergence results in challenges – and opportunity.

Carleen Lyden Walker, Executive Director of NAMEPA and long-time member of America’s Boating Club of Greenwich, discusses the current situation of shipping and what can be expected in that crucial industry over the next ten years.

Carleen has over 40 years in the commercial maritime industry and was recently named one of the top 100 women in shipping globally. She works to develop strategic alliances between industry, regulators, conservation groups and educators to “Save Our Seas“.

She graduated from Wellesley College with a BA in Political Science and History (minor in Economics), and studied Accounting at Cornell School of Business Administration. Perhaps of most interest to our audience is that she held a USCG Captain’s license – and has enjoyed boating of all kinds all her life.
