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 tagline this year is: “At Sea For All“.
The tagline 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”.
If you are on social media, you can start to spread the word, using the campaign hashtag #AtSeaForAll.
We will shortly be making available the 2016 toolkit which tells you how you can join the campaign.
We also invite you to learn more about the IMO Maritime Ambassador Scheme, launched by IMO to promote the maritime and seafaring professions and raise awareness of the positive benefits of choosing a career at sea or other maritime profession.
