Marlow celebrates Day of the Seafarer 2015


In cooperation with the International Maritime Organization (IMO), Marlow Navigation celebrated International Day of the Seafarer 2015 on June 25, saying thank you to all seafarers around the world.

This year, IMO shifted its focus to maritime education, as part of efforts to promote and inspire young people to consider a Career At Sea. As IMO points out, 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 purpose of the event is to help promote the maritime and seafaring professions, as well as to raise awareness of seafarers and their importance to international trade and the global economy.

No doubt, it is vital that we continue to promote our industry as an attractive career path, and support its development and sustainability.​

The campaign showed how the multi-faceted maritime world offers a series of rich and fulfilling career opportunities for young people, both at sea and ashore. Overall, the Day of the Seafarer campaign was a massive success, reaching millions across the world, and driving more awareness about the great work of seafarers.
