World Rivers Day is September 25th!

Millions of people and thousands of events, both physical and virtual, will mark World Rivers Day 2022 on Sunday, September 25 in what has become one of the largest environmental celebrations on the planet. With many of the world’s rivers in a degraded state due to pollution, industrial development, and climate change, it’s more important than ever to come together to protect these vital ecosystems. This year’s theme is: „waterways in our communities“ with an emphasis on both protecting rivers that remain in a healthy state, while striving to restore those that have been damaged in past. With over 100 countries hosting events, you’re almost certain to find one near you!
