International World Water Day. Yes, it sounds a little hokey… I mean there is pretty much a “day” for everything lately. But it truly is a great way to draw attention to issues that are affecting people’s lives daily.
Each year, the objective of world water day is different.This year the focus is on water and food security and helping to grow awareness of how everyone can personally help in their daily lives. Make sure to check out the website that I linked to above and see the different ways you can help, or just to learn more!
Make sure you explore the map located on the Worldwide Events page of the World Water Day website, you will be able to see all of the different events that are going to raise awareness of the food and water crisis taking place.
I was particularly pleased to see that the Water Walk that will take place here in Greenville, SC at Furman University on April 13th was there.
Speaking of which, be on the look out for the Water Walk registration page that I will be posting soon! In the meantime, you might want to check out this article about Dr. Peter Rogers, who was recently at Furman discussing water sustainability concerns.
Oh…and just because I thought this video was good 🙂
