Amber Alert

World Water Day

In 1992, the UN General Assembly designated March 22 as World Water Day to draw international attention to the critical lack of clean, safe drinking water worldwide. In 2007, 69 cities across the United States passed resolutions acknowledging March 22 as World Water Day.

Despite the apparent abundance of clean water in the US and most of the developed world, more than 1 billion people around the world lack clean, safe drinking water and more than 2.6 billion lack adequate sanitation services.


Virtual Walk For Water
If there is not a Walk in your area or you can't attend in person, show your support by joining the global "Virtual Walk For Water" from the comfort of your home or office. We'll include your name in a symbolic water jug to be carried by a participant in one of the local Walk for Water events.
