Water for Peace

 Embracing our role in the one community of life…(Invitation & Call, 2022)  




The theme of World Water Day 2024 (22 March)  is Water for Peace drawing attention to water as intrinsic to all aspects of the interconnected community of life.
Whether in rivers, lakes or oceans, water means life to ecosystems, agriculture, industry and human well-being.

World Water Day also highlights the need to recognise and respect water scarcity globally.  About 2.2 billion people still lack access to clean drinking water.


“When we cooperate on water, we create a positive ripple effect — fostering harmony, generating prosperity and building resilience to shared challenges.”
– United Nations, WWD 2024

We are not faced with two separate crises, one environmental and the other social, but rather with one complex crisis which is both social and environmental.”
