World Maritime Day 2017

About World Maritime Day 2017

“Connecting Ships, Ports and People” has been selected as the World Maritime Day theme for 2017. The theme was chosen to provide an opportunity to focus on the many diverse actors involved in the shipping and logistics areas.

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.

World Maritime Day 2017 is formally celebrated at IMO on 28 September 2017. Member States and other entities are invited to celebrate with activities in the same week, and throughout the year.

Insert GOAL instead of “piece of design” and the quote becomes very apt for coaching too. If we are going to try something new, to learn, to move beyond our comfort zone and stay motivated to work for that goal – it certainly helps if it is a WOW.
