  • Day of the seafarer - June 25th

    Hello Everyone!

    This month the IMO are promoting day of the Seafarer. We have been asked to help by using social media to spread the word. How many of you have had to suffer conversations with friends or family who assume that you're in the Royal Navy, or that most of the goods we use come in by air, or any of the other utterly inane comments that people make about our job?

    So, all they are asking that we do is, using facebook, twitter, blogs etc, on the 25th June, post about something that you own, that came in by sea, that you can't live without, and ask your friends to do the same.

    Have a look at this for more details. http://www.imo.org/About/Events/dayo...lkit_final.pdf

      Yes, last year was year of the Seafarer, also, last June 25th was Day of the Seafarer. It's an annual thing now, listed in the United Nations list of observances.

          I've liked the facebook page, but as I'll be on a prairie in Canada playing army on the 25th I won't be able to participate directly. Hopefully though someone will see my 'like' and think; 'hmmm...'

              Today is the day! Please twitter, facebook, myspace (does anyone still use that these days?!) pintrest, whatever your social media vice is... As an idea, this is what I posted on fb, and I'm twittering too..

              Today is International Day of the Seafarer. Those of you who work at sea are no doubt as fed up as I am at the lack of awareness about what we do. Those of you who landlubb, you know what I do by now, but do your friends know that 90%, yes that's 90% of all goods in this country come here by sea?? Your shiny gadgets, the fruit on your table, your clothes... all came here by sea. So do me a favour, please. Take a moment today to tell other people about something that came by sea that you can't live without, and say thank you to those men and women who work on those ships. #dayoftheseafarer #thankyouseafarer
