Cheers! Today is World Water Day

World Water Day

As you get your daily dose of water, think about World Water Day.

Do you drink as much as water as you should and is recommended?  I’m a huge consumer of water, at least one gallon a day.  I attribute my brilliant health (thank goodness) to my copious water consumption.   In the United States, it’s a matter of how much water we should drink, not if and how we can get our hydration needs met. But that’s not true for everyone. That’s why we are supporting and promoting the observance of  World Water Day today.

This day was designated by the United Nations in 1992 and on March 22, 1993 the first World Water Day was acknowledged.  This was developed to help spread awareness about the power of water. This year, they’re focusing on water and jobs. A staggering number of jobs relate back to water and delivering it where it’s needed, but many of the people working these jobs around the world don’t have basic labor rights.

Today, almost half of the world’s workers related sectors – 1.5 billion people – and nearly all jobs depend on water and those that ensure its safe delivery. Yet the millions of people who work in water are often not recognized or protected by basic labor rights. The theme this year is — water and jobs — and it is focusing on how enough quantity and quality of water can change workers’ lives and livelihoods – and even transform societies and economies.

This World Water Day, think about the people who work in water. Spread awareness about the importance of their roles and their right to protection. You can also learn more about water and what you can do here.
