THE VALUE OF WATER
SEEING THE UNSEEN: THE VALUE OF WATER
World Water Week 2022 takes place from 23 August to 1 September. World Water Week is an annual event organized by Stockholm International Water Institute (SIWI) since 1991 to address the global water issues and related concerns of international development with a focus on the diverse aspects of water, how others view and value water and the exploration of water’s full value to society.
Water is essential for human existence and life in general. This inorganic, transparent, tasteless, odourless, and nearly colourless chemical substance is the main constituent of Earth’s hydrosphere and the fluids of all known living organisms.
Many families in our communities spend their time worrying about their water source and water condition. Our organization decided to bring a good source of pipe-borne clean water for drinking and for domestic chores to make life easier for communities having challenges with access to clean water also children can stay in schools instead of worrying about water. Access to clean drinking water is a human right.
The origin of water on Earth is the subject of a body of research in the fields of planetary science, astronomy, and astrobiology. Earth is unique among the rocky planets in the Solar System in that it is the only planet known to have oceans of liquid water on its surface.
This year’s Theme is geared at tackling the world’s greatest challenges, such as the climate crisis, poverty, and the loss of biodiversity.
TOGETHER WE MAKE WATER A GLOBAL PRIORITY
WATER IS A BASIC HUMAN RIGHT
WATER IS A BASIC HUMAN RIGHT – BUT IT IS ALSO A FINITE RESOURCE
Water scarcity is a growing problem, with one in four people living in water-scarce areas.
The global water crisis undermines our ability to produce food, protect livelihoods, and build strong economies.
Poor and vulnerable groups will be disproportionately affected, resulting in growing inequality.
The need for effective and collaborative water management will only grow as the effects of climate change put increasing pressure on global resources.
Achieving a Clean Drinking Water-Secure World for all requires bold POLICY ACTIONS and INVESTMENT at all LEVELS.
WORLD CLEAN-UP DAY 2022
World Clean-Up Day is a day set aside for concerned citizens of the world to globally engage in cleaning up activities in their local environment. On this day, every environmental enthusiast, Earth lover and citizen of the Earth is encouraged to get engaged in cleaning up activities either actively or passively.
Anywhere on the planet that humans inhabit, pollution is certain to occur — it is natural for us to produce waste — but what is done with the waste that has been produced is of great importance. An ever-increasing population especially in urban areas is closely followed by a tremendous increase in pollution on land, water and air. Sadly, not much is done to reduce this pollution. People still discard waste indiscriminately without regard to its aftereffect and the environment is certainly not smiling at this unscrupulous behaviour of man. The indiscriminate disposal of waste leads to pollution and pollution has a ripple effect viz. environmental degradation, the toxicity of the atmosphere, and toxicity of water bodies leading to the death of aquatic life and an unpleasant environment to live in due to the prevalence of diseases.

PET ECO-FRIENDLY TOILET
So we successfully launched the PET ECO-FRIENDLY TOILET project in collaboration with Ecocykle and Lift Humanity Foundation. So we talked about the importance of #WASH intervention programs, and how transforming a generation through Water, Sanitation & Hygiene can improve global health while issues of Open Defecation can be addressed by building more Eco-Friendly toilets.
