World Maritime Day 2021
The annual World Maritime Day is an opportunity to highlight the importance of shipping and other maritime activities and to highlight certain aspects of the work of the International Maritime Organisation. The global economy could not function without the international transport of goods, fuelled by the maritime industry. This is a fact that can be overlooked by many as World Maritime Day was organised to address this issue.
World Maritime Day was celebrated on March 17, 1978 to mark the 20th anniversary of the International Maritime Organisation, which originally grew from 21 to 167 member states and today includes all the major countries of the maritime industry. World Maritime Day 2021, this year's theme is seafarers, at the heart of the future of navigation. Many maritime organisations and unions organise special events and activities to celebrate the day. This activity and event ranges from seminars to school lunches and day classes.
Few classes can organise a trip to a maritime museum so that students understand the importance of the maritime industry in shaping world history and trade. Throughout history, people have understood that many countries around the world follow international rules that can improve maritime safety. This is why many treaties have been in force since the 19th century.
The original name of the IMO was the Intergovernmental Maritime Consultative Organisation (IMCO), but the name was changed to IMO in 182. The IMO focuses in particular on areas such as safety, environment, law, maritime safety, technical cooperation and maritime efficiency. These members include virtually all nations in the world interested in maritime affairs, including those concerned with maritime transport and coastal states concerned with the protection of their maritime environment.
