Strengthening WMU’s Partnership with the City of Malmö

Shortly after assuming office as WMU President, Professor Max Mejia met with Ms Katrin Stjernfeldt Jammeh, Mayor of Malmö, and Ms Carina Nilsson, Chairperson of the Malmö City Council.

Furthering a long-standing partnership, the World Maritime University (WMU) and the City of Malmö signed a renewed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in June. The renewal builds on a 2018 agreement and continues cooperation regarding maritime and ocean affairs, recognizing the important role both parties play in bringing national and international academia, industry, and civil society to meet in Malmö. 

Regarding the renewal, Professor Maximo Q. Mejia, Jr., WMU President, said “We are grateful for the longstanding support from the City of Malmö and welcome the renewal of this mutually beneficial agreement. The University’s relationship with the City has evolved into a true partnership in which we are working together to advance the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.”

Ms Katrin Stjernfeldt Jammeh, Mayor of Malmö, said, “Malmö has a long and proud history of maritime activity, and we are immensely proud that the city of Malmö is home to the world-renowned World Maritime University. The presence of the WMU in Malmö means the continuation of our city’s maritime traditions, and we are delighted to have renewed and deepened the agreement between the city of Malmö and the WMU.”

The agreement aims to foster the development of new knowledge in sustainable oceans governance and literacy as well support capacity building abroad. Further, the agreement supports cooperation between the parties on educational activities, fostering research initiatives, and collaboration in the delivery of events and outreach activities to support the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Goals, in particular Goal 11 on sustainable cities and communities and Goal 14 on life below water and sustainable use of the oceans.
