"Connecting Ships, Ports and People" theme for 2017 World Maritime Day

The theme for World Maritime Day 2017 is "Connecting Ships, Ports and People"
Every year the United Nations (UN) via the International Maritime Organization (IMO) celebrates World Maritime Day, which is used to focus attention on the importance of shipping safety, maritime security and the marine environment and to emphasize a particular aspect of IMO's work. Each World Maritime Day has its own theme, which is reflected in IMO’s work throughout the year.

The theme for 2017 World Maritime day is "Connecting Ships, Ports and People". It has been selected following the proposal of Secretary-General Kitack Lim to the IMO Council.

Addressing the IMO Council, Mr. Lim said the theme would provide an opportunity to work with developed and developing countries, shipping and public and private sector ports with a view to identifying and promoting best practices and building bridges between the many diverse actors involved in these areas.

The objective are
  • to improve cooperation between ports and ships, and develop a closer partnership between the two sectors 
  • raise global standards and setting norms for port and coastal State authorities and for the safety, security and efficiency of ports.
  • and standardizing port procedures through identifying and developing best practice guidance and training materials.
The maritime sector, which includes shipping, ports and the people that operate them, can and should play a significant role helping Member States to create conditions for increased employment, prosperity and stability ashore through promoting trade by sea; enhancing the port and maritime sector as wealth creators both on land and, through developing a sustainable blue economy, at sea" Mr. Lim said.
In this way, IMO will be contributing to achieving the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which are a broad response to the challenges facing the world today – increasing world population; climate change; threats to the environment; unsustainable exploitation of natural resources; threats to food security; societal threats posed by organized criminals and violent extremists; and instability leading to mixed migration.

"Ultimately, more efficient shipping, working in partnership with a port sector supported by governments, will be a major driver towards global stability and sustainable development for the good of all people," Mr. Lim said.

World Maritime Day is celebrated around the world including countries like Australia, United States, United Kingdom, Philippines, India and many other countries. Seafarers and people who work under the maritime industry should also cooperate and play the most important role to achieve the goal.

World Maritime Day is celebrated in the last week of September each year, although the exact date is up to individual governments around the world.
