Dublin celebrated World Water Day in March 2018, and then…
LA Waters Programme: events for World Water Day – 22 March 2023
This World Water Day is about accelerating change to solve the water and sanitation crisis. And because water affects us all, we need everyone to take action. You can join one of the events being organised by the LA Waters Programme listed below or contact your Community Water Officer for more information.
Access to healthy and clean water is vital for our health and well-being. Each one of us can make a difference in how we use water in our daily lives. You can also get involved in community-led projects and events focussed on enhancing water quality in local rivers and lakes. If you want to get involved and take action for water, your Community Water Officer can help. You can find their contact details here: Communities Team – Local Authority Water Programme (lawaters.ie)
