This year's UN theme for World Water Day is ‘Water for All – Whoever you are, wherever you are, water is your human right’. Sustainable Development Goal 6 is crystal clear: water for all by 2030. By definition, this means leaving no one behind. But today, billions of people are still living without safe water – their households, schools, workplaces, farms and factories struggling to survive and thrive. Marginalised groups – women, children, refugees, indigenous peoples, disabled people and many others – are often overlooked, and sometimes face discrimination, as they try to access and manage the safe water they need.
This World Water Day, 22nd March, tackles the water crisis by addressing the reasons why so many are being left behind.
Two special guest presenters will join us to share the water experiences of marginalised groups in Australia. Watch this space for more details!
