World Water Day
World Water Day falls on the 22nd March and centres around water and climate change. Founded in 1993, it has been held annually ever since.
Having clean water to use and consume is a human right and necessity. Unfortunately, we all know not everyone has access to safe water.
According to the World Health Organization, at least 2 billion people globally use a drinking water source contaminated with faeces. In less developed countries, 22% of health care facilities have no water service, 21% no sanitation service, and 22% no waste management service.
By 2025, half of the world’s population will be living in water-stressed areas.
We need to act now. No act is too small – we can all make steps towards conserving our water and helping prevent climate change.
