World Water Day 2021
In celebration of World Water Day, the UN Global Compact Academy host a session to learn from corporate leaders about the value of water
to businesses and how sustainable water use can build toward long-term business resilience.

The Value of Water for Business

World Water Day 2021 focuses on the value of water, highlighting its importance from multiple angles, including cultural, environmental, economic, and financial. This session will be separated into two sections. In the first section, corporate leaders will discuss what “water means to the business sector,” and why it should be prioritized in business decision making. In the second section, two practical tools will be introduced to help companies advance water stewardship practices, in conjunction with case examples of companies who have already used these tools.

The duration of this session is 90 minutes:

Clean water, sanitation, and hygiene education are basic necessities for a
healthy environment and a productive life.
When people have access to clean water and sanitation, waterborne diseases decrease,
children stay healthier and attend school more regularly,
and mothers can spend less time carrying water and more time helping their families.
Through water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) programs, Rotary’s people of action mobilize resources, form partnerships,
and invest in infrastructure and training that yield long-term change.

Everyday is World Water Day with Rotary 
At least 3,000 children die each day from diarrheal diseases caused by unsafe water, a grim reminder for Rotary members who make providing clean water and sanitation an organizational priority. While very few people die of thirst, millions die from preventable waterborne diseases, providing the impetus for our members to provide toilets and latrines and other clean water initiatives in underdeveloped countries. Members also teach these communities to maintain new infrastructure, and organize educational projects to promote hand-washing and other good hygiene habits.
Though 22 March is recognized as World Water Day, our commitment to these causes is ongoing. 
In Ghana, Rotary member Samuel Obour spearheads projects to install latrines, washing stations, and toilets across Ghana. In Latin America, youth from Connecticut, USA, lay water pipelines for communities for high altitude villages. Dozens of other water projects await financial support, from water harvesting in Mexico to a well for clean potable water in Egypt. Join us and get involved.
Or meet us in São Paulo on 4 June for our World Water Summit, the seventh time Rotary members have hosted NGOs, nonprofits, businesses, and concerned citizens of the world for learning, networking, and discussion around clean water. In addition to our summit, members regularly host water experts for roundtable discussions at their clubs. 
In Evanston, Illinois, join local and national experts for Tap Into Lake Michigan, a panel discussion on local perspectives to the global water crisis on 31 March. The event brings together Rotary members and the general public to mingle with influencers and representatives of local water organizations. 
Our commitment to clean water is stronger than ever. We have over 1.2 million members in more than 34,000 clubs in nearly every corner of the world. Learn more about who we are and what we do.
