Maritime Schools' Conferences 2022

Register now for the Wellness at Sea Maritime Cadet Report (publication date January 2023)

Drawing on findings from our 2022 conferences designed especially for cadets, Sailors’ Society’s Wellness at Sea Maritime Cadet Report will provide vital insight into shaping future work around seafarer wellness and mental health, including how best to recruit and look after the next generation of seafarers.

Positive wellbeing for a rewarding seafaring career

Designed especially for maritime colleges and their current students, these online conferences explore the all-important subject of wellbeing and mental health, helping prepare cadets for a long and fulfilling career at sea. Content is tailored to focus on key issues facing today's seafarers including working in a post-Covid world, crises such as the current war in Ukraine, and diverse workforces.

Chaired by Johan Smith, Sailors’ Society’s head of wellness and the charity’s lead on its pioneering Wellness at Sea programme, the events feature talks from industry leaders, interactive sessions and practical advice, equipping and empowering participants with awareness and skills that will serve them throughout their seafaring lives.
