Not sure how to share your gratitude? Here are some ideas to get you started:
What is World Water Day?
“Leaving no one behind” is the 2019 theme for World Water Day held on March 22nd. Many people around the world and in Canada, especially those in First Nation communities, do not have access to safe, clean drinking water. To find out more about World Water Day visit worldwaterday.org.
Why show gratitude for Nibi (water)?
We all connect with water multiple times a day, but it is usually when we are without water that we appreciate it the most. Nibi (water) is the life blood of mother earth, needed to sustain not only us, but all life. By saying Miigwetch (thank you) to water you are helping to connect with and protect water for all.
This contest is brought to you by TRACKS Youth Program, GreenUP’s Wonder of Water (WOW) program, and the Peterborough Children’s Water Festival
