World Water Day 2019 – what’s it about?


So much of what we do at Asynt is with the emphasis on making smart changes in the lab to lessen negative impact on the environment.  We’ve introduced key apparatus which is quite literally changing the way that chemists all over the world are working but we won’t rest on our laurels!

Of course, we aren’t the only ones working hard on environmental issues and the annual World Water Day gives us all an opportunity to focus on the worldwide water shortage that truly is a universal problem.

World Water Day 2019

What is World Water Day?

“Sustainable Development Goal 6 is crystal clear: water for all by 2030. By definition, this means leaving no one behind. But today, billions of people are still living without safe water – their households, schools, workplaces, farms and factories struggling to survive and thrive.

Marginalized groups – women, children, refugees, indigenous peoples, disabled people and many others – are often overlooked, and sometimes face discrimination, as they try to access and manage the safe water they need.

This World Water Day, 22nd March, is about tackling the water crisis by addressing the reasons why so many people are being left behind.”
