This year’s themes are ‘Maritime Jobs at Sea and Ashore’, promoting UK maritime employment opportunities, including shore-based jobs, and ‘Sea Ports for Prosperity’, encouraging UK port owners and operator to actively promote their essential contribution the national economy.
Seafarers UK coordinates and promotes Seafarers Awareness Week in June each year, to coincide with the International Maritime Organization’s ‘Day of the Seafarer’.
As an ‘island nation’ the UK has always been heavily dependent on our maritime industry. Over 90% of imports come to us by ship, including much of our everyday food and fuel. Yet many people are completely unaware of the world of shipping, the seafarers who work in it, and the essential role of our sea ports.
