World Rivers Day is observed on the fourth Sunday of September each year, and this year it will be on September 25th. The main goal of observing the global event is to raise awareness about the importance of conserving and protecting rivers. The first World Rivers Day was observed in 2005, when Mark Angelo was the first to call for an annual World Rivers Day at the United Nations while addressing the Water for Life campaign.
The World Rivers Day is celebrated with a different theme each year, with the theme "Waterways in our Communities" in 2021, but the theme for World Rivers Day in 2022 has yet to be announced. Learn more about World Rivers Day, including its history, significance, and theme, by clicking here.
