World Water Day, on 22 March every year, is about taking action to tackle the water crisis. Today, there are over 663 million people living without a safe water supply close to home, spending countless hours queuing or trekking to distant sources, and coping with the health impacts of using contaminated water.
The Sustainable Development Goals, launched in 2015, include a target to ensure everyone has access to safe water by 2030, making water a key issue in the fight to eradicate extreme poverty.
The SCC Student Water Resource Association has organized a Clean-up the River Event with the Spokane Riverkeeper. We will be posting event flyers all over campus and organizing widespread involvement of the student body.
