March 22th: Demand children’s right to clean water!
Each day more than 700 children under 5 years die from water and sanitation related disasters.
600 million children will live in regions with extremely limited water resources by 2040.
Millions of lives are threatened by the water crisis, particularly those that are most vulnerable and have contributed least to the problem. Governments must be held accountable and recognize children’s right to a healthy environment now.
Let’s create awareness on World Water Day on March 22th and get your action pack here!
Join in and spread the campaign in the social media and among your friends. How? Here are a few tips.
HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL TWEETSTORM, FEBRUARY 23
During the Human Rights Council 46th session (22 February - 23 March) several governments will be planning to launch a joint statement calling for the recognition of the right to a healthy environment and inviting governments to co-sponsor. This is a critical moment for us to pressure governments to join. On 23 February we are launching a Tweetstorm, where individuals and organizations around the world will be calling on governments to recognize the right to a healthy environment on Twitter.
We invite you to participate using our Tweetstorm pack, including sample tweets, graphics and Human Rights Council Members Twitter Handles.
