Wet Your Whistle Poetry Night – Tuesday March 22

Hey Poetry Lovers!

Join us on Tuesday (March 22) as we mark World Water Day with “Wet Your Whistle” Poetry Night.

What is World Water Day?

Edmonton Water Week is a full week of events to mark World Water Day, which falls annually on March 22, following a United Nations initiative that grew out of the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in Rio de Janeiro.

The United Nations General Assembly designated 22 March of each year as the World Day for Water by adopting a resolution. This world day for water was to be observed starting in 1993, in conformity with the recommendations of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development contained in chapter 18 (Fresh Water Resources) of Agenda 21.

World Water Week in Edmonton is organized by a network of organizations committed to protecting and preserving the water commons, and which work on a range of issues related to water:

Sierra Club Prairie
Rewild Alberta!
RaiNDaNCe RuBBeRBooTs
Public Interest Alberta

Parkland Institute

Our Water is Not for Sale

North Saskatchewan Riverkeepers
North Saskatchewan River Alliance
Greenpeace on Campus
Council of Canadians University of Alberta Chapter
Council of Canadians Edmonton Chapter
Council of Canadians
APIRG
Alberta Union of Provincial Employees Environment Committee

 

 

Poets Against Apartheid
