World Water Day: Webinar Link Bank

World Water Day was started by the United Nations in 1993 and occurs every year on March 22. This day is meant to celebrate water and raise awareness of the 2 billion people in the world you do not have access to safe water, and to inspire action towards the U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goal 6: water and sanitation for all by 2030.
