World Water Day - March 22, 2021


The 2021 theme of World Water Day is Valuing Water.

Water means different things to different people.  This conversation is about what water means to you.  How is water important to your home and family life, your livelihood, your cultural practices, your wellbeing, your local environment?  By recording – and celebrating – all the different ways water benefits our lives, we can value water properly and safeguard it effectively for everyone.
