In 1993, the United Nations General Assembly designated 22 March as the first World Water Day. 22 years later, World Water Day is celebrated around the world shining the spotlight on a different issue every year. According to UN WWD website, "It’s a day to celebrate water. It’s a day to make a difference for the members of the global population who suffer from water related issues. It’s a day to prepare for how we manage water in the future". This year's celebration is devoted to the water and sustainable development. It’s about how water links to all areas we need to consider to create the future we want: health, nature, urbanization, industry, energy, food, equality.
Join us for World Water Day 2015 and send us creative pictures on water and sustainable development!
