Discovering New Avenues for Cadets

Sailors’ Society, the global maritime welfare charity, is gearing up for its third Wellness at Sea Maritime Schools’ Conference in North Asia, offering an exciting virtual experience for cadets. This year, the conference takes place online on August 7th, showcasing a cutting-edge virtual conference center with interactive sessions and simulated trade show exhibits. The event is the first of four conferences scheduled for 2023, each addressing crucial aspects of seafarers’ wellness and mental health, with a focus on diversity.

The conference promises an enriching experience for the attending cadets, featuring presentations from influential industry leaders and advocates. Among the esteemed speakers are Capt. Tushar Pradhan, General Secretary of the Maritime Union of India, and Mariana Noceti, representing the Women in Maritime Programme at the International Maritime Organization (IMO). Their presentations will shed light on key issues facing today’s seafarers and equip the cadets with valuable knowledge as they embark on their careers at sea.

In 2022, over 5,000 cadets attended the charity’s virtual conferences in India, the Philippines, and Africa, with an overwhelming 95% of attendees advocating for these conferences to be an integral part of their maritime syllabus. The upcoming virtual conference program includes South East Asia on September 23, Africa on October 12, and, for the first time, the UK’s esteemed maritime colleges on November 9.
