2019 AVK World Water Award

This year we invite our customers and partners worldwide to take part in a competition that focuses, not only on World Water Day, but also on UN Sustainable Development Goal no. 6: "Clean water and sanitation for all". 28-01-2019

World Water Day is an international event held annually on the 22 March, as a means of focussing attention on the importance of water. This year’s World Water Day is about tackling the water crisis by addressing the reasons why so many people are being left behind.

Did you know!
‘In the UK each person uses approximately 150 litres of water every day, most of which is used to flush the toilet and yet, around 844 million people do not have clean water to drink, that’s around 1 in 10 people in the world.’

Why a world water day?
World Water Day is an opportunity to learn more about water related issues, be inspired to tell others and take action to make a difference. Each year, UN-Water — the entity that coordinates the UN’s work on water and sanitation — sets a theme for World Water Day corresponding to a current or future challenge. The engagement campaign is coordinated by one or several of the UN-Water Members with a related mandate.
