How People Green the Port


Kristianne Hendrickson and Peter Hall. 2018. “How people green the port”, in Monios, J and Gordon Wilmsmeier, G. (eds) Maritime mobilities, Chapter 4. Abingdon: Routledge.

Arguing that the role of port workers as both representatives of transport interests and members of local communities position them as central intermediaries in port greening processes, this chapter examines how localized initiatives and micro-scale approaches shape the social license and greening of ports. The authors of this piece argue that while macro-level shipping issues are not losing relevance, further attention ought to be paid to local actors and workers to understand the social, economic, and political process of port greening.
