Leveraging water for peace, how you can celebrate World Water Day 2024

Every year, the 22nd of March marks World Water Day, a day for reflection and to spur action to tackle the global water crisis. The 2024 edition follows the theme ‘Leveraging water for peace’ and offers an array of possibilities to participate in this celebration, both online and offline. From sports activities to high-level panels, and from cultural events to academic symposia, online and on-site. As World Water Day taskforce member, IGRAC is involved on several events.

Rehydrating the Earth: football as tool for groundwater awareness raising

To reach a larger audience about the importance of sustainable groundwater management, it is important to go beyond policy briefs, reports, scientific publications or webinars. For that reason, IGRAC teams up with Football for Peace to unite the groundwater community and football world to incite mass activation. Since we both envision a long-lasting impact, this ‘Rehydrating the Earth’ campaign is a 10-year partnership.
