IMO unites with the global maritime industry in the exploration and celebration of new technologies for greener shipping.
IMO regulation helps drive innovation in ship design, propulsion, and energy-efficient technologies - to achieve greener shipping.
The 2022 theme of "New technologies for greener shipping" aims for a greener transition of the maritime sector.
The theme is linked to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
IMO is hosting a two-day Innovation Forum and engaging global audiences to share their thoughts on the World Maritime theme via social media.
The IMO Headquarters building will be lit up to mark the occasion of World Maritime Day and shine a spotlight on this year's theme.
The World Maritime Day Parallel Event (WMDPE) will be held in Durban, South Africa, from 12 to 14 October 2022.
