The multi-faceted maritime world offers a series of rich and fulfilling career opportunities for young people, both at sea and ashore.
Seafaring can provide young generations not only with an opportunity to provide for their families but also with unique opportunities to navigate the seas of the globe and encounter the wonders of the world. Other avenues such as marine engineering, naval architecture and maritime law provide the chance for an exciting and dynamic life in a truly vital professional sphere.
But young people need to be engaged and enthused if they are to see and understand these opportunities. With this in mind, IMO maintains the IMO Goodwill Maritime Ambassadors scheme.
