World Water Day, March 22nd

Which glass wouldn´t you take even if you were thirsty? Some people have no choice and they ARE thirsty so they have to drink what you wouldn´t.

March 22nd has been International World Water Day since 1993; it started as an international day of observance and action to draw attention to the role that freshwater plays in our world and lives. Watch this video to understand what we are talking about here.

This year, 2010, the emphasis is on the fight against the global sanitation and the water crisis that’s killing 4,000 children every single day. Next month, in April, politicians from across the globe will gather in Washington DC. to discuss what they need to do to fulfill some of the most basic rights of the world’s citizens – access to a safe toilet and clean water. That is the reason why this campaign, The World´s Longest Toilet Queue, started. Click on the link to join the queue or learn about it.

There are many websites in the internet where you can either read and learn about this or take action. Twilight Earth, for instance, is a blog dedicated to saving the Environment through shared News, Discussion, Advocacy and Activism, as they say; while End Water Poverty, Fresh Water Action Network and Charity: Water focus on civil actions or organizations with the same goal: bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations. And last, but not least, the Official Website of World Water Day .

This video shows that things can change, just like they changed in Europe in the past:
