The World Rivers Day

World Rivers Day is observed every year on the fourth Sunday of September. It is celebrated to raise public awareness about the rivers and the importance of all of the waterways around the globe. It highlights the values and significance of rivers and strives to increase public awareness and encourages the improved stewardship of rivers around the world.

The plants and animals surrounding the river and canyon would not thrive and be as beautiful as they are if our rivers were polluted. This day is celebrated to ensure that these important bodies of water are celebrated and appreciated as they should be.

Rivers are healthy freshwater environments that supply water for drinking, growing crops, manufacturing, energy, and transport. Rivers are vital for people and wildlife it needs careful management because there’s not always enough to go around. It is a day that highlights the importance of rivers, aiming to heighten awareness and encourage people to preserve our important and beautiful rivers.

The United Nations launched the Water for Life Decade in 2005 to help create an awareness of the need to better care for our water resources. And this was followed by the establishment of World Rivers Day in response to a proposal initiated by internationally renowned river advocate, Mark Angelo.

The proposal for a global event to celebrate rivers was based on the success of BC Rivers Day, which Mark Angelo had founded and led in western Canada since 1980. River enthusiasts from around the world came together to organize the World River Day event.

Mark Angelo is an internationally celebrated river conservationist. He is the founder and Chairman of both BC and World Rivers Day and is Chairman of Emeritus of the Rivers Institute at the British Columbia Institute of Technology 

Some of the major rivers of the world are Amazon, Mississippi, Nile, Euphrates, Ganga, Yamuna, Brahmaputra etc. The major Peninsular Rivers are Mahanadi, Godavari, Krishna, Kaveri and some others.

Rivers have been extremely helpful to men in all parts of the earth from the very early times of human existence. They provide water to slake the thirst of men, fertilize their lands, a means of communication for the goods that transport from place to place, and provide food, energy, recreation etc. Rivers provide us with fresh drinking water. Rivers are the biggest sources of freshwater.

Around 96% of the water body consists of saline water which cannot be consumed by humans. We need to rely upon the rivers for drinking water.

Rivers influence not only the place but also the people, their customs, practices, tradition, and lifestyle. Rivers not only provide water for their domestic needs and agricultural purposes but also enable people to move from place to place through the water path.

We, likewise humans, should be respectful of the water resources and protect them from being polluted for our own welfare. 0 0 0
