💧💦🌊💧💦☔️ Happy World Day. March 22nd every year is a day to celebrate water because who can argue against the notion that #waterislife
? But also it’s a day to remember that we’re in an ongoing water crisis as still to this day 844 million people live without access to clean water. That’s roughly 1 in 10 people on earth. Climate change impacts are exacerbating this problem while we have been working hard to reduce these numbers through a concerted effort at the global level to implement the SDGs (sustainable development goals). I know many inspiring people who are dedicating their life’s work to restore our relationship with water and ensure we #leavenoonebehind
. It’s a long journey ahead, but the people I know are committed, driven and persistent.
Water Innovation Labs are one of the ways I commit myself to this water work. You can check out the next WILs planned in #Lebanon
and in many more places to come- where we’re equipping young leaders to tackle complex water challenges in their local context and globally.
