The theme for 2020 is Reimagining our Water Future.

As our population grows, this will put more stress on our water resources, so how can we reimagine the way we use and reuse water to ensure there’s enough of it in the future?

How can we rethink our current water practices to help conserve valuable water resources?

What can we do as individuals and as communities to inspire a more sustainable water future?
