Day of the Seafarer - 2016

Posted in General News

This year, IMO's Day of the Seafarer campaign wants to celebrate seafarers and let the world know how and why seafarers are indispensable to everyone.

The campaign theme this year is: "At Sea For All".

The theme has a clear link with the 2016 World Maritime Day theme, 'Shipping: indispensable to the world', emphasising that seafarers serve at sea not just for the shipping industry or for their own career purposes but for all of us – and, consequently, they are also 'indispensable to the world'.

IMO Secretary-General Kitack Lim said: This year, on June 25th, the Day of the Seafarer, we are once again asking people everywhere to show their appreciation for the seafarers that quietly, mostly unnoticed, keep the wheels of the world in motion."

You can start spreading the message on social media using the campaign hashtag #AtSeaForAll. The 2016 toolkit is available, which tells you all about this year's campaign and gives examples of tweets and posts you can use to add your voice of thanks to ours!
