World Water Day
Take a moment to think about
the Earth's most valuable resource
22 is World Water Day. It is a chance for people to stop and think
about a natural
resource that is often taken for granted.
The world's water needs protecting. Nearly 1.1 billion people do
not have access to clean, safe drinking water. That's about one
out of every five people on the planet.
World Water Day has been celebrated
internationally for 15 years. It was first observed in 1993, the
year after the United Nations passed a resolution to make March 22
World Water Day. Every year, events across the globe take place to
draw attention to the critical water situation and to raise
awareness about the world's water woes.
