Launched May 2020, the Nautilus Champions are a group of activist members who act as spokespeople for the Union, give opinions, make suggestions and drive energy into development and initiatives.
The Champions also bring a more diverse and representative voice to the Union.
The Champions programme will be rebooted in 2022 with more opportunities for media training, mentoring, and lobbying. We need members from all sectors, both at sea and onshore, across all ages and from all our branches in the UK, Netherlands and Switzerland.
If you care about your Union and want to share your stories, get in touch.
