    IMO / UNITED NATIONS NEWS & EVENTS

    DAY OF THE SEAFARER 2014 SEAFARERS BROUGHT ME...JUNE 25th

    IMO will be celebrating the fourth edition of its global campaign: Day of the Seafarer, held every year on June 25th. The decision to establish 25 June as International Day of the Seafarer was taken at a diplomatic conference in Manila, Philippines, where milestone revisions to the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW) and its associated code were adopted. Seafarers are the people without whom food, clothes, gifts, gadgets or even basic needs would not reach our doors. We rely on them every day. Yet have you ever said thank you to a seafarer? Chances are you haven't. This year, IMO gives you the chance to show your appreciation. Our social media campaign wishes to engage the public to tell us what seafarers have brought them, and to thank seafarers for doing so. Join us in our campaign and complete the sentence: Seafarers brought me....

    Think of something you own and for which you wish to thank a seafarer. If you can, provide a photo or video of it and post it on one of our social media using the hash tag #thankyouseafarer

    Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/imohq

    Twitter: @IMOHQ and our campaign hashtag is: #thankyouseafarer

    YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/IMOHQ Toolkits will soon be available to explain how to get involved and support the campaign. So stay tuned for more information shortly. Full Story »
