World Water Day 2016!

 

World Water Day

World Water Day is held on March 22nd annually. This event dates back to March of 1992 and is used to promote the awareness of water and water related jobs. About half of the world’s workers are employed in a water related field, that is about 1.5 billion people. 2016’s World Water Day theme is: Better Water, Better Jobs. The issue that World Water Day is trying to address is the lack of human rights protection within the water sector. World Water Day is hosted by UN-Water. UN-Water runs all water related campaigns within the United Nations. This campaign “aims to inform, engage, and inspire action”.
