    While we concern ourselves trying to remember our eight glasses daily, could you imagine waking up and finding that you don’t have access to clean and safe drinking water?

     

    According to the UN, 783 million people around the world still lack access to clean water, and millions who work in water related industries do not have their rights protected.

     

    World Water Day is part of a global mission to get safer water for all. It’s a day for people to learn, get involved and take action.

     

    This is the 23rd year, and it’s organised by UN Water.

     

    For this year the theme is water and jobs.

     

    The aim is to raise awareness on how clean water can change the lives of workers, and even transform entire societies and economies.

     

    UN Water found out that almost half the world’s working population (1.5 billion of us) work in water-related sectors, and nearly all jobs depend on water and the people who ensure its safe delivery.

     

    But the millions of people who work in water related industries aren’t always recognised or protected by even basic labour rights.

     

    By improving these rights, and improving access to safer water, we can improve the lives of many.
