25 June: Day of the Seafarer

The 2017 Day of the Seafarer (DotS) was observed on 25 June 2017 by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) with the theme 'Seafarers Matter'.

This year's theme aims to particularly engage ports and seafarer centres to demonstrate how much seafarers matter to them. The idea is for ports and seafarer centres to share and showcase best practices in seafarer support and welfare, and organise special activities for seafarers on the day.
