CT World Water Day is an art show in association with World Water Day that aims to celebrate, educate and inspire. In 1992, The UN General Assembly declared that World Water Day be held annually on March 22 as a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources.

2018 year’s theme

– Nature for Water –

explores how we can use nature to overcome the water challenges of the 21st century.

Environmental damage, together with climate change, is driving the water-related crises we see around the world. Floods, drought and water pollution are all made worse by degraded vegetation, soil, rivers and lakes.

When we neglect our ecosystems, we make it harder to provide everyone with the water we need to survive and thrive.

Nature-based solutions have the potential to solve many of our water challenges. We need to do so much more with ‘green’ infrastructure and harmonize it with ‘grey’ infrastructure wherever possible. Planting new forests, reconnecting rivers to floodplains, and restoring wetlands will rebalance the water cycle and improve human health and livelihoods.

The evening  will feature:
– A water-themed visual art exhibit
– Presentations from state legislators and leaders of environmental organizations
– Water-themed performance art (music, dance, poetry)
– A water blessing ceremony
