Help BIMCO call on decisionmakers to support seafarers

Today, on 27 May, BIMCO has launched “Seafarers Deserve Support”, the second in the series of films produced to raise awareness about the shipping industry. The second film is calling on governments and decisionmakers world-wide to step up and support the seafarers behind world trade.

The pandemic has exposed a widespread lack of understanding about the crucial role of seafarers and the crew change crisis is far from over. Like its predecessor, “Ships Make the World Go”, the aim of “Seafarers Deserve Support”, is for the film to be shared as widely as possible to help raise awareness.

In addition to the lack of action in finding solutions that will allow crew change, seafarers are exposed to other safety issues that urgently require the attention and action of governments, including piracy.

To help share “Seafarers Deserve Support”, which serves as a valuable tool to help raise awareness, educate and increase the support for seafarers, please view and share the film via this link: https://www.bimco.org/SeafarersDeserveSupport
