World Rivers Day is a celebration of the world’s waterways. Running since 2005, it highlights the many values of rivers and strives to increase public awareness and hopefully encourage the improved stewardship of rivers around the world. Rivers in every country face an array of threats, and only our active involvement will ensure their health in the years ahead. World Rivers Day organizers encourage all of you to come out and participate. In particular, consider starting a Rivers Day event of your own, which might range from a stream cleanup to a community riverside celebration.
World Rivers Day takes place annually on the last Sunday of September, with the next celebration to be held on Sunday 24 September, 2017. River advocates from around the globe will be taking part—and you can too. Visit www.worldriversday.com for more information and to join the celebration!
