Currently 1.1 billion people lack access to clean water.
World Water Day 2008 - this March 22 - is a time to take action and help solve this problem. Please visit WorldWaterDay.org and WorldWaterDay.net to find out how to get involved in one of the marches in NYC, LA and Seattle (you can also join a virtual march), or become a water advocate.
The Sierra Club also has a few good ideas: host a "Running Dry" screening, send a message to decision-makers, or simply get smart about the issue.
Water is a critical part of sustainable development, contributing to the preservation of the natural environment and alleviation of poverty.
