March 22nd - World Water Day

This year's motto World water day reads: "Leaving no one behind "(" Leaving no one behind - clean water and sanitation for everyone). Because having clean water available at all times is not a matter of course: In the poorest countries in the world, people have to travel an average of six kilometers to get water - these water sources are also often contaminated. And more than two billion people have no access to clean water. Particularly affected are those groups of people who already experience disadvantage because of their gender, their age, their ethnic affiliation or their socio-economic status.
