World Water Day

 

Since 2010, Drink Local. Drink Tap., Inc. ™ has led educational, youth-focused events on the United Nation’s International World Water Day (WWD) every March 22nd. We celebrate local student action that has positively impacted local water resources and how students have helped people -globally- gain access to safe water. In 2020, the focus of WWD is ‘Climate Change and Water- everyone has a Role’ which means our presentations, posters, and activities related to this topic.

DLDT has partnered with the Greater Cleveland Aquarium (GCA) to bring 300 Wavemaker Program students to the GCA for a day of water education, celebration and awards thanks to the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District. Students are able to explore the GCA and visit interactive learning stations provided by fellow students and DLDT partners. This year, 2020 is DLDT’s 10-year anniversary too!

Ways you can participate:

  • Hosting an interactive learning station for students from  9am-12pm
  • Sponsor World Water Day 
  • Volunteer (prior to and on WWD 8:00am-12pm)
  • Have your school or class participate! Email Kristine@DrinkLocalDrinkTap.org by March 1st.

Prior year partners include, but are not limited to: The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, City of Cleveland, Sustainable Cleveland 2019, Kinetico, the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District, Moen, Arcelor Mittal, Lubrizol, the Sears-Swetland Family Foundation and more.
