Making the invisible visible together

For the first time, the World Water Day and World Toilet Day shared the same theme, namely: "Groundwater, making the invisible visible". To connect both international celebrations, IGRAC proposed to ask people from all over the world to share their groundwater stories with the hashtag #MyGroundwaterStory, an initiative that started on 22 March (World Water Day) and ended on 19 November (World Toilet Day).

Hundreds of contributions were shared, from school children to old farmers and from small NGOs to individual environmentalists. Below you can find some examples.
