Water means different things to different people. This conversation is about what water means to you.
How is water important to your home and family life, your livelihood, your cultural practices, your wellbeing, your local environment?
In households, schools and workplaces, water can mean health, hygiene, dignity and productivity.
In cultural, religious and spiritual places, water can mean a connection with creation, community and oneself.
In natural spaces, water can mean peace, harmony and preservation.
Today, water is under extreme threat from a growing population, increasing demands of agriculture and industry, and the worsening impacts of climate change.
Tell us your stories, thoughts and feelings about water. By recording – and celebrating – all the different ways water benefits our lives, we can value water properly and safeguard it effectively for everyone.
