A Community Connections Gathering To Celebrate World Maritime Day 

Established by the United Nations in 1978, World Maritime Day is meant to raise awareness about the importance of the shipping industry and the vital contribution it makes to places all over the globe. 

ENJOY PANCAKES FROM AROUND THE WORLD: EVERYBODY LOVES PANCAKES, a tasty, comforting, and beloved staple enjoyed around the world. They make us feel good. Every country or region has their own take on pancakes. Some are thin, some are fluffy. Some are made with fruit, some with vegetables. Some are sweet – and some savory. ALL ARE DELICIOUS. Enjoy a hearty stack while networking with new and old friends. 

DISCOVER MARITIME CAREER AND VOLUNTEER PROSPECTS: The maritime industry is a pivotal, vibrant, and dynamic one – in the Bay Area and throughout the world. By 2030 the ocean economy will be worth $3 trillion. Rapid advances in technology and innovation are reshaping the maritime industry. The types of skills required for the maritime ocean workforce are, and will be, changing over the next several years. Even as the maritime industry moves to keep up with the pace of technological change, hiring and keeping talent is a challenge. Learn about this amazing industry and its promising roles at our Maritime Opportunities Awareness Expo. 

SUPPORT SEAFARERS who are at the crux of maritime. They operate the ships that bring the goods that make our lives comfortable and convenient. Yet, their lives at sea are far from idyllic, with many international seafarers regularly completing long term voyages which leave them isolated from friends, family and loved ones for up to nine months at a time. The Seafarers’ Ministry of the Golden Gate at The International Maritime Center provides help and support to the ship crews as call the Port of Oakland.

The cost to attend is $20 per person. First 25 registrants pay only $5.00 per person. Register now!
