Theme For Day Of The Seafarer 2015: Career at Sea

Day of the seafarer 2015 is fast approaching. This year the International Maritime Organization is shifting its focus to maritime education. We want you to consider a career at sea. Most people go to work in offices, factories and shops, but it’s a different picture for seafarers: an office can be a hundred thousand-ton oil tanker or a cargo ship navigating the world’s oceans with beautiful landscapes.

This year’s campaign will show how the multi-faceted maritime world offers a series of rich and fulfilling career opportunities for young people, both at sea and ashore.

Day of the Seafarer

So we’ll be showing you what a career at sea could look like and hope to inspire young people to consider a #CareerAtSea.

Below you can read or download our toolkit which will tell you how you can join the campaign. We are still developing some content so not everything is ready but you can still learn a lot about what is coming up and how you will be able to support the campaign.

In the meantime, you can start to spread the word if you’re on social media, share your experiences using the campaign hashtag #CareeratSea.
