World Water Day is observed each year on 22 March.  The day, which was established by the United Nations was first celebrated in 1993 to celebrate the importance of freshwater around the globe.

Did you know that over 45% of the world’s land surface is covered by river basins, and over 75% of all countries have their boundaries within shared river basins.

All around the world events will be held to celebrate freshwater and promote its sustainability, and every year there is a different theme.  The theme for 2016 is “Water and Jobs”.

From water and our future to sanitation and water scarcity, the day aims to keep us informed, and in a whole host of different ways!

Around the world there will be an array of events, from musical performances to galas, art shows and seminars.
