Day of the Seafarer 2017

This year, once again, the 25th June will mark the annual Day of the Seafarer (DotS), and the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) has announced its theme of ‘Seafarers Matter’.

The IMO’s theme of ‘Seafarers Matter’ aims to particularly engage ports and seafarer centres to demonstrate how much seafarers matter to them. The idea is for ports and seafarer centres to share and showcase best practices in seafarer support and welfare, and organise special activities for seafarers on the day, such as:

  • A social event organised in port to celebrate seafarers
  • A public open day at seafarer centres
  • Free WiFi in port for a day

Test your seafarer knowledge over on the IMO’s website with a fantastic quiz.
