World Water Day is Saturday, March 22

Each year the UN declares March 22 as World Water Day to raise awareness of the global water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) crisis faced by billions of people in the poorest parts of the world. Organizations around the world host events to help accelerate progress.

Global celebrations for World Water Day 2014 will address the nexus of water and energy, and will be coordinated by the United Nations University and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization on behalf of UN-Water. You can learn more about World Water Day, including educational materials, here.

This year, to take advantage of the Congressional schedule, advocates on US water policy will gather in Washington DC on Thursday, March 13 (instead of March 22), to make their case. To find out how you can help, even from home, click here.
