March 22: World Water Day

Today is World Water Day -  a day celebrating water.

Every year, World Water Day focuses on a different issue. 2015's issue is "Water and Sustainable Development", how we should consider water and how it is connected to achieve the future we want.

Safe, drinkable water saves lives. By 2030, we want everyone to have access to this kind of water.

748 million people in the world don't have access to safe water. This is roughly one in ten of the world's population.

2.5 billion people don't have access to an adequate bathroom, one in three of the world's population.

More than 500,000 children die every year from diarrhea caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation. That's over 1,400 children a day.

This World Water Day, think of what water means to you. How will it achieve the future you want?
