Seafarers Matter

​This year, once again, 25 June will mark the annual Day of the Seafarer (DotS). DotS was established in a resolution adopted by the 2010 Diplomatic Conference in Manila to adopt the revised STCW Convention. Its stated purpose is to recognize the unique contribution made by seafarers from all over the world to international seaborne trade, the world economy and civil society as a whole.

The resolution "encourages Governments, shipping organizations, companies, shipowners and all other parties concerned to duly and appropriately promote the Day of the Seafarer and take action to celebrate it meaningfully".

This year our theme is "Seafarers Matter".

For 2017, IMO 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.
