About World Maritime Day
Every year the International Maritime Organization (IMO) celebrates World Maritime Day. Each World Maritime Day focuses on a theme - emphasising an aspect of the IMO’s work.
In 2018, IMO will celebrate 70 years since the Convention establishing the Organization was adopted.
The World Maritime Day theme for the year is "IMO 70: Our Heritage – Better Shipping for a Better Future".
This provides the opportunity to take stock and look back, but also to look forward, addressing current and future challenges for maritime transport to maintain a continued and strengthened contribution towards sustainable growth for all.
