Day of the seafarer 2017. The IMO is celebrating the 7th edition of its global campaign: Day of the Seafarer, held every year on 25 June to commemorate the Diplomatic Conference which met in Manila to adopt milestone revisions to the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watch keeping for Seafarers (the STCW Convention) and to celebrate the worlds seafarers.
Previous year’s campaigns have seen the IMO increase awareness about the roles, responsibilities and benefits supplied by the world seafarers and to thank the men and woman whom have chosen a career at sea using the hashtag #thankyouseafarers.
