Every year on March 22, the United Nations recognizes World Water Day, an international observance and opportunity to learn more about water related issues and be inspired to take action to change our water future. The first World Water Day was dreamed up in 1992 at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development and the first annual observance took place in 1993. This year’s theme, “Water and Jobs,” was chosen to help raise awareness for the 1.5 billion people, or half the world’s workers, who work in water related sectors and will focus on how the quantity and quality of water can change workers’ lives and livelihoods.
