Today is World Water Day 2011

I should have wrote about this earlier but since I just know this event a few minutes back after receiving an email from our corporate office in the US, I'll write about it now XD.

Taken from Google.

International World Water Day is held annually on 22 March as a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources.

An international day to celebrate freshwater was recommended at the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED). The United Nations General Assembly responded by designating 22 March 1993 as the first World Water Day.

Each year, World Water Day highlights a specific aspect of freshwater. On this page, we present a brief overview of the different themes that have been the focus of World Water Day celebrations.

Here in the Philippines, President Benigno Aquino III lead the event which was held at SM Mall of Asia early this morning.

Happy World Water Day to everyone XD
