World Water Day

World Water Day 2024: Water for Peace

Our staff around the world are showing support for the United Nations' World Water Day 2024. Held every March 22 since 1993, World Water Day provides an opportunity to learn about water-related issues and inspire change.

This year's World Water Day theme — 'Water for Peace' — is about fostering harmony, generating prosperity and building resilience to shared challenges. When water is scarce or polluted, or when people struggle for access, tensions can rise. By cooperating on water, we can balance everyone’s water needs and help stabilize the world. 

Back in 2015, world leaders committed to Sustainable Development Goal 6 as part of the 2030 Agenda — the promise that everyone would have safely managed water and sanitation by 2030.  

Water affects us all, so when we cooperate on water, we create a positive ripple effect. We hope you join us in this campaign and be the change you want to see in the world
