Today is World Water Day. From the UN’s website:


World Water Day is on 22 March every year. It is an annual United Nations Observance, started in 1993, that celebrates water and raises awareness of the 2 billion people currently living without access to safe water. A core focus of World Water Day is to inspire action towards Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6: water and sanitation for all by 2030.

Here are two actions we can take to honour this day.

1. Write a Letter to our Prime Minister Demanding Clean Water for All Indigenous Communities

I have created a PDF with step by step instructions and suggested wording for writing your letter:
Letter to PM – Clean Drinking Water

This is a great video to watch with your kids, of the amazing Autumn Peltier, before starting this letter to get a better understanding of the issue – “On National Child Day, meet clean water activist Autumn Peltier” | CBC Kids News: https://youtu.be/A33XRMLBbOc

Check out this letter from a powerful, fierce, passionate 10 year old who attended my Letter Writing session on this topic:

2. Sign Autumn Peltier‘s Petition

Autumn has co-created a petition that you can sign to add your voice to the call that Indigenous communities deserve CLEAN drinking water.
