Happy World Water Day from No Water No Life!
World Water Day is a day dedicated to spreading awareness of the importance of fresh water through social media, educational events, campaigns, etc. In the past, the annual themes of World Water Day included sanitation, cooperation, energy, culture and more. This year, the theme is “Water and Jobs,” focusing on the power that water and jobs have to transform people’s lives.
“Today, almost half of the world’s workers – 1.5 billion people – work in water related sectors and nearly all jobs depend on water and those that ensure its safe delivery. Yet the millions of people who work in water are often not recognized or
protected by basic labor rights.”
