World water day 2024

💧 World Water Day, held on 22 March every year since 1993, focuses on the importance of freshwater. It celebrates water and raises awareness of the 2.2 billion people living without access to safe water. It is about taking action to tackle the global water crisis. A core focus of World Water Day is to support the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 6: water and sanitation for all by 2030.

💧 The theme of World Water Day 2024 is ‘Water for Peace’: Water can create peace or spark conflict. When water is scarce or polluted, or when people struggle for access, tensions can rise. By cooperating on water, we can balance everyone’s water needs and help stabilize the world. Read more about related issues and possible solutions on UN's website.

💧 The more people talk about these global issues, the more action will be taken - on personal and on governmental level as well. Just like last year, we decided to contribute to the campaign with posters you are free (and encouraged) to share on social media. Give people the chance to talk about the importance of freshwater.
