What’s National Water Week?

National water week inspires individuals, communities and organisations to work together to build awareness around the value of water. Access to clean water is immensely important to every aspect of our lives. We must do our best to protect our water environments and resources and use water wisely.

The theme for National Water Week this year is “It’s time to change the world”. This theme has been adapted from the world’s largest lesson on the UN’s sustainable development goals, a campaign to introduce the 17 sustainable development goals to all young people all over the world and unite them to take action to meet these goals by 2030.

The UN’s Sustainable Development goal six challenges us to work towards a world where everybody will have access to safe and clean water. There are many little things that we can do in everyday lives to save water.
