World Water Day
March 22, 2016
This annual event focuses attention on the importance of freshwater and advocates for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. In 1993, the first World Water Day was designated by the United Nations General Assembly and since, each year focuses on a different issue pertaining to water.
How can you help?
Here are four easy steps to spread the ripples of change from Wateraid.org:
It’s easy to be a part of World Water Day and make a difference.
By raising funds and spreading the word, you can help us get another step closer to ensuring that everyone everywhere has access to safe, clean water by 2030.
- Step 1 – Go blue! You can dress head to toe in blue, sport a Walter the water drop face mask, bake blue cakes or play the blues – be as creative as you like!
- Step 2 – Challenge your friends, school or office to join you. Ask for a small donation to take part and tell your local media too.
- Step 3 – Tell the world why you are #Blue4Water and call on world leaders to keep their promise for everyone to have access to clean water and sanitation by 2030.
- Step 4 – Change your profile picture to our blue wash (coming soon!), and share your photos on social media. Spread the ripples of change even further.
