World Water Day: March 22, 2006

World Water Day, March 22, has been observed since 1993, with a different United Nations agency coordinating the event each year. This year UNESCO has that honor, and the theme it has chosen, Water and Culture, draws attention to the many ways water is viewed, used, and celebrated around the world. Visitors to the site can watch a video or download a fact sheet or poster, learn how to get involved in water issues, and/or check out water-related resources on the Nature Conservancy's Web site.
