As noted, the programme constitutes a unique educational experience aimed at bringing primary school students close to the dynamically developing field of Shipping and the professional activities surrounding it. At the same time, it seeks to enlighten the public, over the advantages of Shipping, raising overall awareness of its positive and vital role in the economy and society.

The programme is an initiative of the Cyprus Shipping Chamber and CYMEPA and is officially supported by the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Transport, Communications and Works as well as the Shipping Deputy Ministry. It has been successfully running annually, since 2006.
