On 25 June, the Day of the Seafarer will be celebrated for the fourth year in a row. The day was established by the IMO (International Maritime Organization) to increase awareness of all the people working in global shipping and to show them appreciation. This year the IMO is running a campaign in various social media in connection with the celebration. The aim is to increase public awareness of the crucial role that seafarers play in people’s daily lives through the transport of goods. Those who want to contribute to the campaign can do it via Facebook:
