ISWAN Seminar 2019

ISWAN Seminars bring together organisations which are active in the wellbeing of seafarers from all over the world. Open to ISWAN members and also to those not yet members, you can be sure of good speakers and presentations, time to network and discussion of current areas of concern, and attendance of people from all areas of seafarers welfare.

This year, the ISWAN Seminar will be held in Mumbai with the theme: 'Working together to protect and promote the mental wellbeing of seafarers'.

The mental wellbeing of seafarers is of major concern to the maritime industry. There is increasing awareness of this issue but many companies, organisations and individuals are still not sure what to do and who they can turn to. Our seminar will invite international speakers to help provide pointers / signposts and practical solutions to all those who are concerned about this issue and want to do something about it.

Date: Tuesday 19 November 2019

Time: 08:30 - 16:30 IST

Venue: Renaissance Mumbai Convention Centre Hotel, Mumbai, India
