Welcome to the 6th issue of Goals., Creature & Co.’s monthly E-Book that brings you a snapshot of positive news relating to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal of the Month. This issue is all about Goal #6: Clean Water and Sanitation, which calls for access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene for all.
In 2015, the world committed to Goal #6 as part of the 2030 Agenda; the promise that everyone would have safely managed water and sanitation by 2030. Unfortunately, however, we are completely off-track to achieving this. Water affects every single one of us on Earth, so we all need to pull up our socks and do something that’ll make a difference
World Water Day 2023 on March 22nd is calling for us to do exactly that; accelerate change to solve the water and sanitation crisis. The global campaign Be the Change is encouraging people to take action in their lives to change how they use, consume and manage water.
Be the Change allows you to choose the actions you/your community/your organisation will commit to with the aim of solving the water and sanitation crisis. Check it out and remember to submit any further action ideas you may have; all promises from individuals and communities will contribute to the Water Action Agenda alongside larger commitments from governments, companies, organisations, institutions, and coalitions.
What will you do to help? If you’re looking for inspiration, then look no further than the stories featured in this month’s issue. As always, we’re highlighting the positive ways people and organisations are doing their bit to progress the Goal of the Month’s objectives.
