hummingbird world water day 2023 be the change you want to see in the world

This year's World Water Day theme is Accelerating Change.

World Water Day 2023 is about accelerating change to solve the water and sanitation crisis. Back in 2015, the world committed to Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6 as part of the 2030 Agenda – the promise that everyone would have safely managed water and sanitation by 2030.

Right now, we are seriously off-track. Billions of people and countless schools, businesses, healthcare centres, farms and factories are being held back because their human rights to water and sanitation have not yet been fulfilled.

To prepare for this World Water Day, Project WET is offering resources for everyone to learn about water and for educators to teach about water and sanitation with students. Find our award-winning resources below and celebrate with us this World Water Day!

World Water Day takes place every year on March 22nd.

Did you know that most adults in America don't know where their water comes from? Have you ever wondered where water goes after you use it? If you're looking for answers to these questions, then check out this brand new resource! We've partnered with Mister Car Wash on a webpage that allows users to explore their watershed, where their water comes from, where it goes, and what challenges their watershed is facing. Just type in your zip code or click a location on the map to learn more.
