Reminder to participate and spread the word about our social media campaign for this year’s Day of the Seafarer and the chosen theme of Your voyage – then and now, share your journey.
The International Maritime Organization will be celebrating the 2022 day of the seafarer on 25th June 2022 – which is a Saturday. This year’s theme is ‘Your voyage – then and now, share your journey’ and focuses on the changes that seafarers are seeing in their career paths and work environments.
As in previous years, the 2022 Day of the Seafarer event will predominantly be held on social media as part of a campaign to draw attention to the contribution that seafarers make to shipping and world trade.
Participants in the campaign can use this year’s hashtag #SeafarerJourney – or our general hashtag of #DayOfTheSeafarer and join in the conversation.
Seafarers are invited to post two photos: one of their first voyage and another of their most recent voyage. We would also like to know what has changed during your maritime voyage. Is shipping greener? Is the technology better? Are you more skilled? What have you learnt? Please use the hashtag #SeafarerJourney or #DayOfTheSeafarer
Support organizations, shipping companies and port organizations are also invited to show their appreciation for seafarers by resharing their posts or using the hashtag #SeafarerJourney or #DayOfTheSeafarer and discussing the importance of seafarer journeys.
Members of the public are encouraged to post about the many ways in which seafarer journeys benefit their lives (eg: bringing them food, electronics, medicines, etc) using the same hashtags: #SeafarerJourney or #DayOfTheSeafarer.
Photos and posts can be shared on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram. Tagging the IMO will allow us to view and reshare some of the posts.
