National Water Week
Making a splash across Australia every third week in October
About the Week
National Water Week inspires individuals, communities, and organisations to build awareness around the value of water.
Access to clean water is hugely important to our daily lives, and it’s down to all of us to protect our water environments and resources and use water wisely.
As the national host for the week, we encourage organisations, schools, and communities to create, take part in, organise, and promote National Water Week events, activities, and educational resources.
2022 theme: Our Water Stories
Every year National Water Week focuses on a broad theme allowing all tribes to participate. This year's theme is an invitation to all to share their Water Stories.
Water covers three-quarters of our planet and makes up two-thirds of our bodies. We thirst for it and bathe in it. It's used by communities, industry and agriculture for health and liveability, the environment, Aboriginal cultural access, manufacturing and production of food and other produce. Water is an essential resource needed for economic prosperity wherever you live.
From our perspective, Our Water Stories perfectly enhance and continue this year's Ozwater theme 'Our Water Journey' and AWA's celebration of 60 years.
We invite the community to explore their own stories and imagination, looking to the past, present and future.
What's your water story?
