Happy World Water Day!

World Water Day is once again around the corner! This international holiday is a time to explore our connections with water and reflect on the critical role it plays in our daily lives.

The goal behind this simple exercise goes beyond trying to get us to understand the value of water, it really is to inspire us to protect the resource in light of our own individual needs and the needs of our communities.

It’s impossible to define water’s single greatest benefit. (That’s how much we need it, people.) We need clean drinking water to stay healthy. We need enough water to grow our food. Water supports industry, energy, transportation, recreation, cities and towns, wetlands and forests, parrots and polar bears, agriculture and aquaculture. Water shapes our climate, it defines our history and WILL form our future.  

But we already know all of this. We are water-savvy. We understand the importance of the quality and quantity of water in our lives.

So, what’s still left to understand? Let’s see. Did you know?

This weekend, I encourage you to explore your connection with water and to discover one new relationship you have with this precious resource. Join the conversation online using #WorldWaterDay!

Happy World Water Day!
