The World Water Day is celebrated on March 22 with the aim to raise awareness about the water importance by taking action to tackle the global water crisis and support the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6: Clean water and sanitation for all by 2030.

In 2021, the theme of the World Water Day is “valuing water”. It is about how people value water for all its uses. The value of water is about much more than its price – water has enormous and complex value in every aspect of our lives. It is therefore important to take care of it and reduce our water consumption!

In this context, “Every Waterdrop Counts!” Initiative launched by the UNDP in Bosnia and Herzegovina invited young people to learn more about the importance of water through Instagram campaign and participate in design competition on water saving and illustrate ways to reduce personal water consumption.  

We are proud to take the opportunity of the World Water Day 201 to announce that we have received 242 submissions from young people across Bosnia and Herzegovina!

 

You can have a look at all the designs and admire the enthusiasm and the skills of these young people here.

The winning designs have been used to illustrate ten water saving tips – these are ways on how every single one of us can reduce our water consumption and better value the water we have! Have a look at them and let them inspire you!

 

Congratulations to Adna, Amedina, Farah, Hamza, Hana, Iman, Irna, Luka, Šejla and Tamer for their outstanding designs and ideas!
