World Water Day

Do you have access to clean and drinkable water? If so, you are fortunate because much of the world does not have access to clean water. You need water to not only stay clean but to keep yourself hydrated, and clean water is essential to keeping you healthy. The focus will be on this crucial fluid on World Water Day because more awareness about it needs to be out.

March 22nd is World Water Day, as it is a national UN day observed yearly. That is the day to learn about the importance of water and acknowledge that you are fortunate enough to access this vital fluid to drink and wash. That is the day to spread awareness about how freshwater resources must be appropriately managed, and the main focus is on hygiene, sanitation, and the importance of having clean water.

Therefore each time you are having a bath or a shower, and the water you use is clean, think about those who don’t have access to having clean showers and baths because the only water they have access to is not properly sanitized. That is why you have some countries with outbreaks of illnesses such as cholera, as that comes from unclean water. Countries with clean water do not need to worry about dealing with those types of epidemics.

However, because you have clean water, anything can threaten it, so you do not want to take it for granted. If the freshwater reserves end up becoming strained, you will quickly feel the pain of not having clean water to drink and washing! This is the day to become aware of that possibility because we need to protect all of our freshwater reserves to prevent that from happening.

History Of World Water Day

During a United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, water was the focus. There was the establishment of the plan to begin water observance for one day a year. The UN General Assembly appointed resolution A/RES/47/193, and that is when the decision was made for March 22nd for each year to be World Water Day. Therefore, the celebration of the first World Water Day was on March 22nd, 1993. The way it was celebrated was by people not using their taps for that day to help conserve water for the rest of the world.

How To Celebrate World Water Day

There are a variety of ways to celebrate World Water Day. Firstly, if you need to use the taps, then use them but be mindful of how much water you use. You will want to go and watch a water documentary so you can learn about the importance of water conversation. Why not plant a tree? Trees allow water to fall onto the ground and to flow through as that helps prevent flooding. Whatever you decide to do, why not share it on social media by putting #WorldWaterDay in the post!
