Day of the Seafarer 2019 – Pacific Basin Family Fun Day

23 Jun 2019 10:00-19:00
This year, once again, 25 June will mark the annual Day of the Seafarer (DotS). DotS was established in a resolution adopted by the 2010 Diplomatic Conference in Manila to adopt the revised STCW Convention. Its stated purpose is to recognize the unique contribution made by seafarers from all over the world to international seaborne trade, the world economy and civil society as a whole.
 
The resolution "encourages Governments, shipping organizations, companies, shipowners and all other parties concerned to duly and appropriately promote the Day of the Seafarer and take action to celebrate it meaningfully".
 
A variety of family programmes and activities are offered in our Family Fun Day on the 23 June (Sunday) for visitors to join for free.
 
Free Admission sponsored by Pacific Basin.
 
Please visit our webpage for programme details.
