This World Water Day is about accelerating change to solve the water and sanitation crisis.

And because water affects us all, everyone needs to take action.

That means you! You and your family, school and community can make a difference by changing the way you use, consume and manage water in your lives.

Your commitments will be added to the Water Action Agenda, to be launched at the UN 2023 Water Conference – the first event of its kind for nearly 50 years.
