22 March – World Water Day

 

World Water Day - Elizabeth Place

Today is World Water Day! The purpose of this day is to raise awareness about the state of sustainable fresh water resources around the world.

More than 880 million people on the planet do not have access to safe drinking water, and the amount of water we need to drink and to produce food, goods, and services continues to grow.

The United Nations General Assembly announced the first World Water Day in 1993. Every year on March 22nd thousands of participants attend the World Water Forum to discuss important issues regarding water sustainability, consumption, and access.
