Every year, on 22 March, the whole world celebrates the Global Water Day established by the UN General Assembly resolution of 22 December 1992. This year’s theme is “Nature for Water.”
The statistics are alarming. As the latest WHO and UNICEF report puts it, today, 2.1 billion people (1 out of 3) fail to have access to drinking water in their place of residence.
The National Water Management Holding Polish Waters would like to use this opportunity and invite everyone to the following events:
- RWMA Białystok, Open Day at Siemianówka Hydrotechnical Plant, 22.03.2018
