Respected Principal, teachers, and my dear friends. A wonderful morning to all of you. Today I am going to share my views on Water day.
Water is a precious natural resource for humans. But not all humans are fortunate enough to have a regular and clean supply of water for them. There are various communities across the globe that face water shortages.
World water day is a united nations initiative and is all about educating our society about the preciousness of water and taking action to tackle water crises. It is celebrated every year on March 22. It was in December 1992, the United Nations adopted a resolution to celebrate this day as world water day.
This day focuses on the importance of freshwater and the sustainable management of freshwater resources. This day also highlights the required improvements for access to water, sanitation, hygiene facilities in developing countries. Nations around the globe organize various events like lectures, discussions, seminars, nature talks to celebrate this day.
Each year this day is celebrated with a specific theme. Such as in 2019, the theme was “leaving no one behind”. 2019 world water day theme aimed at providing water to all by the year 2030.
2020 theme of world water day is ‘Nature and Climate Change’. It explores how water and climate change are linked to each other. It also focuses on facts like using water more efficiently will reduce greenhouse gases. The 2020 campaign also says that we cannot afford to wait. Everyone has a role to play.
Water is as precious as gold and we should not waste it. We need to save it not only because it is essential for humans but also it is a habitat of so many species. We should not pollute water. We should encourage water conservation techniques like rainwater harvesting and water recycling for sanitation and garden.
In short, world water day brings our attention to the importance of saving water.
