September 24 - World Rivers Day

World Rivers Day is an event held every year on the last Sunday of September to celebrate the importance of rivers and to protect and conserve them. It was first observed in 2005, and since then it has become a global movement, with events taking place in different countries around the world.

The main purpose of World Rivers Day is to raise awareness of the important role of rivers in our ecosystem and to highlight the need for sustainable river management practices. Rivers are essential for providing fresh water, supporting biodiversity and sustaining human life. They also serve as transportation routes, energy sources, and recreation areas.

The day is an opportunity for people to connect with their local rivers and appreciate their beauty and learn about the threats they face.
