AGUA HEDIONDA LAGOON FOUNDATION / Virtual World Water Day
World Water Day 2021
World Water Day is an annual UN observance day held on March 22 as a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources. This Day is an opportunity to learn more about water related issues, be inspired to tell others and take action to make a difference.
This year, the theme of World Water Day is Valuing Water. Water means different things to different people. How is water important to your home and family life, your livelihood, your cultural practices, your wellbeing, your local environment? By recording - and celebrating - all the different ways water benefits our lives, we can value water properly and safeguard it effectively for everyone.
