What is Imagine a Day Without Water?
Imagine a Day Without Water is a national education campaign that brings together diverse stakeholders to highlight how water is essential, invaluable, and in need of investment. This year, the day of action will take place on October 23, 2019, and will include events, resolutions, student contests, social media engagement, and more, all across the country.
How many years has Imagine a Day Without Water been a day of advocacy?
Beginning in 2015, Imagine a Day Without Water 2019 will be the fifth annual day of action. Over the past five years we have seen rapid growth in participants, with over 1,100 last year.
Who can participate?
Anyone who cares about water and our nation’s infrastructure challenges is encouraged to join. In the past, we’ve recruited water and wastewater providers and agencies, mayors, local officials, contractors, civil engineers, schools, aquariums to participate in Imagine a Day Without Water, but welcome all those with a water story to tell!
