This year IMO celebrates 70 years since the Convention establishing the Organization was adopted. The World Maritime Day theme for the year is "IMO 70: Our Heritage – Better Shipping for a Better Future". This provides the opportunity to take stock and look back, but also to look forward, addressing current and future challenges for maritime transport to maintain a continued and strengthened contribution towards sustainable growth for all.
The theme for World Maritime Day, 2017, connecting ships, ports, and people, recognizes the profound integration of these three key elements in marine activities. One of the fundamental requirements of all three elements is safety. The IMO has in place extensive strategies to be implemented by member nations for complete security of ships, ports, and the people associated. Making the seas safe for seafarers is one of the primary goals of sustainable development all across the world. India is an active participant in this endeavor and has implemented several measures to assiduously protect its coasts and oceanic boundaries. A discussion with Capt. L. K. Panda, former Nautical Advisor to the Government of India, gives us an insight into the same. #worldmaritimeday #safeseassafeshores #susta...

To help celebrate World Maritime Day, IMO invited some inquisitive young students from schools in London to visit IMO headquarters and find out for themselves how everyday things get transported around the world, how much it costs, and what it’s like to work on a ship. After a series of presentations, games and activities, we asked them what they’d learnt - and, as our latest video release reveals, the answers aren’t always what you might expect!

For their 2015 "Day of the Seafarer" campaign, the International Maritime Organization shifted its focus to maritime education. While most people go to work in offices, factories and shops, it’s a different picture for seafarers: an office can be a hundred thousand-ton oil tanker or a cargo ship navigating the world’s oceans with beautiful landscapes. We produced a video to help show how the multi-faceted maritime world offers a series of rich and fulfilling career opportunities for young people, both at sea and ashore.
Celebrated this year on September 29, Worldwide Maritime Day, an official United Nations day, put the spotlight on the importance of shipping and maritime activities around the globe. This year’s theme, “Shipping: Indispensable to the World,” focused on the critical link between shipping and the everyday lives of people throughout the world. Approximately 80% percent of global trade by volume and over 70% of global trade by value are carried by sea and are handled by ports worldwide, according to the United Nations Conference on Trade & Development. These shares are even higher for most developing countries. Moreover, at the beginning of 2015, the world’s commercial fleet consisted of nearly 90,000 vessels, with a total carrying capacity of some 1.75 billion dwt. This fleet is registere...
