World Water Day: 22 March
In 1993, the United Nations General Assembly officially designated March 22 as World Water Day. It is meant to inspire people around the world to learn more about water-related issues, tell others about these issues and take action to make a difference, particularly in developing countries.
Leonardo da Vinci stated the importance of water with this famous quote:
"Water is the driving force of all Nature."
- Leonardo da Vinci
