World Rivers Day is a day dedicated to celebrating and protecting the world's rivers. It was founded in 2002 by the International Rivers Network, and has been observed every year on September 29th since then.
Rivers are an essential part of our planet, and play a vital role in our environment and economy. They provide us with water for drinking and irrigation, power our hydroelectric dams, and are home to a vast array of plant and animal life. Unfortunately, rivers worldwide are under threat from pollution, overdevelopment, and climate change.
World Rivers Day is an opportunity for us to come together and celebrate the importance of rivers, while also taking action to protect them. There are many ways to get involved, from attending local events and cleanups, to taking part in online campaigns and raising awareness about the issues facing rivers today.
So let's join together and show the world that we care about our rivers!
