Celebrating the “Day of the Seafarer 2024”

We celebrate the annual Day of the Seafarer in the year 2024 today, June 25.

The Up-Sailing project and consortium continue to support the  International Maritime Organization (IMO) Campaign, emphasising this year the importance of seafarers in making the maritime sector a safer workplace. Whether it’s the equipment they wear or the training they receive, the IMO wants seafarers to share their best safety advice at sea in order to involve the industry.

The Day of the Seafarer (25 June) was established in a resolution adopted by the 2010 Diplomatic Conference in Manila to adopt the revised STCW Convention. Its stated purpose is to recognize the unique contribution made by seafarers from all over the world to international seaborne trade, the world economy and civil society as a whole.

The resolution “encourages Governments, shipping organizations, companies, shipowners and all other parties concerned to duly and appropriately promote the Day of the Seafarer and take action to celebrate it meaningfully”.

Day of the Seafarer” is recognized by the United Nations as an observance day.
