The Nautical Institute is to host a webinar this Thursday (25 June) at 1400 BST (UK time).

So here's an opportunity to join the Nautical Institute CEO Captain John Lloyd and a distinguished panel of international experts in celebrating the contribution of seafarers everywhere and examining what lies ahead for the maritime industry.

The webinar will be held on  the 'Day of the Seafarer' to pay tribute to seafarers around the globe, acknowledging their sacrifice and the issues they face.

Many seafarers have been away from home for months and are unsure when they will be able to return home due to travel restrictions. The panel will seek to raise awareness of the work done by seafarers in response to the pandemic and thank them for their contribution.

This webinar will also explore the future of the seafarer, post Covid 19 and in an age of advanced technology and environmental concerns. What will be the impact of automation, increased regulation and even the growing use of renewables for propulsion?

This webinar will be fully interactive, inviting questions from attendees and will provide a certificate of participation to all those who attend.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
