SURVEYOR'S NOTEBOOK

Day Of The Seafarer June 25, 2013

By David Tantrum

This year’s theme for Day of the Seafarer is Faces of the Sea. It is a natural evolution from last yearʼs successful theme of ʻIt came by sea and I canʼt live without itʼ. Fundamentally it moves the theme to bringing the campaign back to the unsung heroes of shipping – the seafarers themselves and literally spotlights the human face of shipping and the sacrifices that seafarers make.

Like in previous years, participation will be key to the success of this campaign, which invites you to voice your support using social media.

For example:  If you are an individual or an organization, post a picture of your favorite product brought by sea and say #thankyouseafarer on Twitter or Facebook.  If you are a company, ship owner, operator or retailer, send a picture of your most popular product and tell how many seafarers bring this product to you and say #thankyouseafarer.
