This year, the theme is the continuation of the IMO’s “fight” (International Maritime Organization) that I shared with you last June: Seafarers are Key Workers, and follows the United Nations’ Sustainable Goals.
A sustainable industry
During the pandemic, the maritime industry continued to carry around 80% of global trade: food, medical supplies, etc. These goods were, and still are, essential every day. As I already explained in my previous post, we could still continue to live our normal lives thanks to the shipping industry that didn’t stop its activity during the COVID-19 crisis.
The ships continued to serve the world in order to save the present and to bring us a future.
All my thoughts are with my colleagues around the world, fighting this crisis on their ship or waiting for their return ticket to their vessel.
To learn more about this topic, I invite you to visit the IMO’s website.
