world water day
today is World Water Day 2010. the theme for this year is "Clean Water for a Healthy World".
The World Water Day 2010 and its campaign is envisaged to:
Raise awareness about sustaining healthy ecosystems and human well-being through addressing the increasing water quality challenges in water management and
Raise the profile of water quality by encouraging governments, organizations, communities, and individuals around the world to actively engage in proactively addressing water quality e.g. in pollution prevention, clean up and restoration.
we take clean water for granted in the developed world. but for many people, clean drinking water remains a major problem.
and what about dry places next to seas and oceans? there is so much water but not for drinking.
can desalination on a large scale be profitable? can deserts be turned to agricultural lands? can the parched lands bloom again?
what can we do on our part? download a free kit.
