Today is World Water Day!
This day is to celebrate the importance of clean water systems. The sixth UN's sustainable development goal sets a target to grant everyone in the world access to safe sources of water and sanitation. Themes related to World Water Day include water scarcity, water pollution, and the impacts of climate change (UN, 2020).
