Singapore World Water Day

Overview

United Nations has officially identified World Water Day to be held annually on 22 March as a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources.

In Singapore, we have localised the theme and chosen "Make Every Drop Count" for Singapore World Water Day 2017 to reflect the importance of water conservation in the equation of water supply and demand management. Join us in the celebrations for Singapore World Water Day and show your contribution towards the water cause.

Dr Amy Khor, Senior Minister of State for Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources (centre), at NurtureStars Pre-school (SAFRA Toa Payoh), to observe its water rationing exercise held in conjunction with Singapore World Water Day 2017.
Students from NurtureStars Pre-school are asked to bring two (1.5 litres) of empty bottles for the water rationing exercise. Their bottles are filled at the pre-school as water supply is turned off for 4 hours to simulate a shortage of water. These children learn to go on their daily activities with the inconvenience of no water, hence learning the importance of water and conserving water.
