World Water Day has been celebrated since 1993. Held on March 22nd, it focuses on creating awareness about the importance of freshwater.
Goal number 6 of the UN Sustainable Development goals is to get access to freshwater to 100% of the population worldwide. Today, 2.2 billion people still live without it, and with the threat of climate change, this number would only continue to increase. This is a global water crisis. It affects everybody.
2021’s day focuses on what water means to each of us, so before we go any further, take a second to answer these questions:
- What does water mean to you?
- What are the benefits that water provides you with?
By answering these questions carefully, we can indeed develop reasons why we should be grateful to have access to safe, drinkable, clean water.

- Learn about global water scarcity and its causes.
- Have meaningful conversations and start changing lives
