March 22nd World Water Day!
“Valuing Water” is the motto for World Water Day 2021, and the United Nations wants to call on people to think about the vital importance of water and its value. This goes far beyond the financial aspect and also includes ecological, social as well as cultural aspects relating to water.
Water is the basis of all life and an indispensable commodity besides. Particularly in light of climate change, changing consumption patterns and ongoing population growth, people must become more aware of the role and environmental importance of water in their lives. Water is a limited resource whose value must first be recognized in order to appreciate and protect it.
Why have a World Water Day?
World Water Day can draw the attention of the general public to these global objectives and their local significance, as well as to the challenges of implementing them. All countries are encouraged to dedicate World Water Day to the implementation of the United Nations recommendations and to carry out appropriate, concrete actions at the national level.
Improving appreciation for water is also the task of every water sommelier and therefore also one of the main goals of the Wassersommelier Union e.V.
