Seafarer Day


Background

Every year June 25 is observed as the Day of the Seafarer. This day is observed to give thanks to seafarers for their contribution to the world economy and the civil society; and for the risks and personal costs they bear while on their jobs.

In 2010, the International Maritime Organization (IMO), decided to observe every year June 25 as the Day of the Seafarer. The first observance was made in 2011.


Actions and Programs

Social media campaigns and other campaigns are made as part of this observation to support seafarers and thank them for their work.
