National Water Week
National Water Week makes a splash right across Australia every October, inspiring us to work together to build community awareness and understanding around water related topics and challenges. It provides a timely reminder that access to clean water is important to every aspect of our lives, and we must do our best to protect our water environments and resources, use water wisely and respect its importance in our societies.
The theme for National Water Week 2019 is ‘It’s time to change the world’. This has been adapted from the World's Largest Lesson on the UN's Sustainable Development Goals, a campaign to introduce the 17 sustainable development goals to young people all over the world and unite them to take action to meet these goals by 2030. The UN's Sustainable Development Goal #6 challenges us to work towards a world where everyone will have access to safe and clean water.
