My dissertation is on Sustainability within the Shipping Industry.

Growing up on the River Tyne and visiting harbour cities such as Hamburg and Vancouver; where shipping is key and the vast, complex, global industry attached to it is at the heart of these places existence and workings.  This inspired Peter to integrate this keen interest into both his academic work at UCLan, and his personal development plans for the future.

Shipping is central to my final year undergraduate dissertation and future potential job interests and was given the opportunity to visit Copenhagen to meet, interview and shadow Mr Poul Woodall, the Head of Sustainability for DFDS Seaways.
