World Water Day 2023: Accelerating Change

Our staff around the world are showing support for the United Nations' World Water Day 2023. 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 is about accelerating change to solve the water and sanitation crisis. Dysfunction throughout the water cycle is undermining progress on all major global issues, from health to hunger, gender equality to jobs, education to industry, disasters to peace.

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.  

Because water affects us all, it's important that we all take action. We hope you join us in this campaign and be the change you want to see in the world
