The 22nd of March celebrates life-giving water on World Water Day. Every year since 1993, World Water Day has risen awareness about water equality and the 2 billion people without safe access to it. It is all about accelerating change to fix the water and sanitation crisis unfolding around the world.

There’s a water crisis?

A dysfunctional water cycle is a decelerator in progress on all major global issues, whether it be hunger, health, gender equality or education and the environment, water impacts everything. In 2015, the world committed to the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs are “the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice.” 

World Water Day focuses on SDG 6 – the promise for safe water and sanitation for all by 2030. The world is currently way off track to meeting this goal by its 2030 deadline. Billions of people and countless businesses, schools, farms, healthcare centres and factories worldwide still do not have access to safe water.

Thankfully, there is a way we can help.

By changing the ways in which we consume, reuse and manage water in our lives, it can make an impact to the wider global community. It may seem miniscule, but there is power in numbers. If you want to learn more about how you can help this World Water Day, and every day, click the link here

If you are wanting to spend the week of World Water Day celebrating or immersing yourself in watery experiences, it’s time to take a trip down to the Mornington Peninsula.

Wellbeing Collective favourite Peninsula Hot Springs is hosting its inaugural Awaken wellness gathering on the 26th of March. Perfect for those who want to commemorate World Water Day but can’t make it to the hot springs on the 22nd, Awaken combines the best of bathing and wellness experiences with the intent to deepen the conversation of wellness. Grab your tickets at the Peninsula Hot Springs website.

World Water Day is a significant day in our calendars, so take a moment to think about how you use water, and start to take some steps to reduce your usage and help those with limited access to something that we take for granted every day.
