Your voyage – then and now, share your journey
LONDON : This year, once again, the annual Day of the Seafarer (DotS) will be celebrated on 25 June.
Every seafarer’s journey is different, but they all face similar challenges. For 2022, the campaign of the Day of the Seafarers, with the theme ‘Your voyage – then and now, share your journey’, look at seafarer voyages, what it includes and how has it evolved over time and what remains at the heart of seafarers’ reality.
This campaign gives seafarers a chance to share what resonates with them currently, whether it’s the crew change crisis being unresolved or the future of technology.
As in previous years, the Day of the Seafarer campaign is centered on social media.
#SeafarerJourney will be the new hashtag for the 2022 campaign.
This year, we are asking seafarers to post two photos, one of their first voyage and another one of the latest or most recent voyage, and tell us what has changed. Is shipping greener? Is the technology better? Are you more skilled? What have you learnt?
This hashtag can be used by anyone engaging in the campaign to pay tribute to seafarers.
Seafarers themselves can use it to showcase their voyages.
All IMO’s social media platforms are featured but Twitter, Facebook and Instagram account for most activity.
