Register your interest for the 2023 Wellness at Sea Maritime Schools' Conferences.

About the conferences

In 2022, almost 5,000 cadets from 40 maritime colleges across India, Africa and the Philippines participated in these online events with more than 98 per cent polled 'feeling better prepared for a career at sea' as a result. We also produced a fourth downloadable conference designed to be used by European maritime schools whenever it suited their curriculum.

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 will 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.

Who: Students at participating Maritime Colleges
