​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​2015 #CareeratSea

 Day of the Seafarer 2015

Thank you for taking part in the fifth edition of Day of the Seafarer. We are happy to report that the campaign has been a success, reaching millions across the world. More details on the campaign summary will be available shortly.

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.

The campaign shows how the multi-faceted maritime world offers a series of rich and fulfilling career opportunities for young people, both at sea and ashore.

Below you can read or download our toolkit which tells you how you can join the campaign. Watch our videos and visit our photo wall to upload your picture showing the world what a career at sea looks like.

Also, if you are on social media, you can start to spread the word, share your experiences using the campaign hashtag #CareeratSea.

Learn more about the IMO Maritime Ambassador Scheme, launched by IMO to to promote the maritime and seafaring professions and raise awareness of the positive benefits of choosing a career at sea or other maritime profession.​
