World Water Day, Celebrated In Hungary, 22 March
World Water Day is an annual UN observance day that highlights the importance of freshwater. The day is used to advocate for the sustainable management of freshwater resources.

World Water Day is celebrated around the world with a variety of events. These can be educational, theatrical, musical or lobbying in nature

UN-Water is the convener for World Water Day and selects a theme for each year in consultation with UN organizations that share an interest in that year's focus.

The theme for 2019 is "Leaving no one behind" and encourages people to consider marginalized groups as these are often overlooked and discriminated against when they try to access safe water.
