Upcoming: World Water Day is March 22, 2023

This year’s World Water Day is about accelerating change, aimed at solving the global water and sanitation crisis. 🌎

Did you know:

πŸ’§ 1 in 4 people – 2 billion people – around the world lack safe drinking water.

πŸ’§ Almost half of the global population – 3.6 billion people – lack safe sanitation.

πŸ’§ Globally, 44 per cent of household wastewater is not safely treated.

πŸ’§ Wetlands are being drained for agriculture, with more than 50 per cent lost since 1900.

Join us on March 22, from 9am-noon in the University of Guelph SOE atrium (University of Guelph, Thornbrough Building) to learn more about how you can make a difference, and hear talks from John Spoelstra, Bassim Abbassi and Samantha Mehltretter.
