World Water Day 2013:
"Cooperating for Water"
Paris, 12 March 2013
Nestlé Waters will celebrate World Water Day in 31 countries on 22 March
World Water Day 2013 will be held under the theme of "Water Cooperation", as part of the United Nations International Year of Water Cooperation.
World Water Day is the occasion for Nestlé Waters to help raise awareness and educate key stakeholders, including children and employees, about caring for water and healthy hydration. Most events at Nestlé Waters are organised around educational activities on water developed by our long-term partner, The Project WET Foundation (Water Education for Teachers).
2013 is the fourth consecutive year that the company is celebrating World Water Day on a global scale: 31 countries, over 15,000 children and around 500 employees are involved.
John J. Harris, President and CEO of Nestlé Waters says: "Cooperation around water flows throughout Nestlé Waters: from the work we do on responsible water resource management to our partnership with The Project WET Foundation. I’m proud of the cooperation our teams are engaged in today, World Water Day, with partners, local schools, and fellow collaborators, to together raise awareness about the importance of freshwater."
