The SSI supports the Day of the Seafarer.

This year’s campaign aims to inspire young people to consider a #CareerAtSea.

It will create a picture of seafaring as a viable, attractive and exciting option for those making their career or further-education decisions.

The Day of the Seafarer is an official United Nations international observance day taking place every year on 25 June, organized by the International Maritime Organization.

The SSI will actively contribute to this campaign so do follow us on @SustShipping and make sure you’ve subscribed to our newsletter

IMO has just released the video “Seafarers – A Career at Sea” produced by the Blue Angel Project. View it below and hear personal stories from the seafarers themselves.
