How Will You Celebrate World Water Day?
Today is World Water Day. Across the globe, people are celebrating the value of water in their lives. I hope you’re celebrating clean water in your part of the world – whether you’re in West Virginia or beyond!
We know water holds value in a variety of ways: health, education, recreation, food, economics, and curbing climate change. Today, the United Nations will be releasing its annual World Water Development Report. I hope you’ll take some time to see how the work we do at WV Rivers connects to the broader movement for clean water.
A little closer to home, I want to encourage you to take three actions for World Water Day.
- If you’re on social media, share what clean water means to you. If you’re on Facebook, tag @West Virginia Rivers Coalition; on Twitter, tag @ourWVrivers. And don’t forget to hashtag #WorldWaterDay and #Water2Me
- Consider a financial gift to WV Rivers – you can do that by clicking here.
- Take a deep breath. There’s water in that breath. Savor a meal. There’s water in that meal. Take a walk in the woods. There’s water coursing through those trees. Celebrate the water around you – and commit to supporting efforts for clean water conservation around the world and close to home.
Happy World Water Day, friends!
