Crew Welfare is on the top of the agenda of several industry stakeholders with calls from the industry by the Neptune Declaration on “Seafarer Wellbeing and Crew Change”. It is now high time that we focused on the vital role that seafarers play for safer and sustainable shipping as well as the whole trade and economy; highlighting ways to improve crew welfare taking into account that the pandemic has added new challenges in the work and daily life onboard.

  • Are there any alarming trends concerning crew welfare?
  • How would you assess industry stakeholders’ response on the issue of crew welfare until today?
