World Water Day was conceived during the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development held in Rio de Janeiro in 1992. Since then the goal of the annual celebration has been to draw international attention to the need for sustainable management of this vital resource. Each year World Water Day focuses attention on a different aspect of freshwater. This year’s theme, “Why Waste Water”, focuses on the benefits of reusing domestic, industrial and agricultural waste water and draws attention to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal of ensuring everyone has access to safe water by 2030.
World Water Day provides teachers and students with an excellent opportunity to explore the role of water in sustaining life and to become actively involved in water issues within their own communities.
