World Water Day
Today is World Water Day! The purpose of this day is to raise awareness about the state of sustainable freshwater 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 3 years, participants will attend the World Water Forum to discuss important issues regarding water sustainability, consumption, and access. The 9th World Water Forum will take place in Dakar, March 22-27, 2022. Send a free eCard for World Water Day to help raise awareness and learn more about this important campaign.
- March 22, 2024 is also National Goof Off Day
