World Water Day

World Water Day 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.

What is World Water Day 2020 about?
World Water Day 2020 is about water and climate change – and how the two are inextricably linked. The campaign shows how our use of water will help reduce floods, droughts, scarcity and pollution, and will help fight climate change itself.

What can I do to help save water?

  • Mulch plants to help them retain water
  • Compost rather than using garbage disposal
  • Add a nozzle to your hose to control water flow
  • Water your garden early in the morning or after 6 in the evenings.
  • Water your plants with recycled water
  • Use a broom, not a hose to clean driveways and walkways
  • Use automated sprinkler systems to control water dispersion and watering times
  • Take a shower instead of a bath
  • Use grey water to flush toilets
  • Only wash full load of dishes and clothing
  • Cover Swimming Pools to Reduce Evaporation
  • Catch rainwater and water your plants

We cannot afford to wait. Everyone has a role to play
