Campaigns ahead of Day of the Seafarer 2018

Ahead of the Day of the Seafarers, on 25 June, IMO will focus on seafarer’s wellbeing, particularly their mental health. This year’s campaign will have two hashtags: #SupportSeafarersWellbeing and #GoodDayatSea. With this campaign, the IMO wants to demonstrate how much seafarers matter.

?This year’s theme for Day of the Seafarer is Faces of the Sea. It is a natural evolution from last year?s successful theme of ?It came by sea and I can?t live without it?. Fundamentally it moves the theme to bringing the campaign back to the unsung heroes of shipping – the seafarers themselves and literally spotlights the human face of shipping and the sacrifices that seafarers make.

Like in previous years, your participation is key to the success of the campaign and you are invited to voice your support using social media.

For example: If you are an individual or an organization – Post a picture of your favourite product brought by sea and say #thankyouseafarer on Twitter or Facebook.
