Every year on the 25th of June, the IMO organises the Day of the Seafarer 2022. This years’ theme: #SeafarerJourney. 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.
#SeafarerJourney will be the new hashtag for the 2022 campaign. This year, IMO is asking seafarers to post two photos, one of their first voyage and another one of the latest or most recent voyage, and tell what has changed. Is shipping greener? Is the technology better? Are you more skilled? What have you learnt?
TOS would like to take a moment to put our TOS employees in the spotlight. We appreciate all the hard work they do and their efforts worldwide to get the job done. STAY HEALTHY, STAY SAFE!
