To mark the "Day of the Seafarer" on June 25, the International Chamber of Shipping (ICS) partnered with its Members, including the Cyprus Shipping Chamber, to launch a Seafarers Recruitment Campaign Film titled "An Adventurous Spirit."
The primary objective of this initiative is to inspire individuals to consider pursuing a career at sea by presenting the benefits, challenges, and significance of seafarers in the maritime industry.
According to a press release by the Cyprus Shipping Chamber, established by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) in 2011, this day serves as a reminder of the invaluable contributions made by seafarers to global trade and the economy.
The Film shows the interesting life of Seafarers, who through their work, play a vital role in transferring all the necessary goods, food, fuel and other commodities across the world with the hope to inspire more people to consider joining the industry.
As noted, education and awareness have always been high on the agenda of the Cyprus Shipping Chamber understanding from day one that investing in the people is the key to maintain a flourishing Industry.
As such, in addition to global Shipping industry’s efforts, to raise public awareness, on a local level towards this effort, the Chamber has been executing successfully for twenty years now various educational activities, providing information to the public and especially youngsters in Cyprus about the employment opportunities that exist in the wider Shipping sector including a career at sea.
