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

And because water affects us all, we need everyone 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. 

This is a once-in-a-generation moment for the world to unite around water. 

Play your part. Do what you can. 


Right now, we are seriously off-track to meet Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6: water and sanitation for all by 2030.  

Billions of people and countless schools, businesses, healthcare centres, farms and factories don’t have the safe water and toilets they need. 

To accelerate change, we need more action. Learn about how in the UN World Water Development Report, the UN 2023 Water Conference and through stories from around the world.
