To document today’s issues, we are asking photographers from around the world to show us what the lack of safe drinking water means knowing the water cycle in its entirety includes all uses and users.
Twelve remarkable photographers will be selected by a panel of world renowned photographers to exhibit their work at the Clean Water Here Global Photography Exhibit 2018 on UN World Water Day, March 22, 2018.
The lack of access to safe drinking water is one of the most important global challenges of the 21st century. Your photos will document our “Decade of Difference” journey as we work together on these important issues.
Clean Water Here is working with UN Water to celebrate UN World Water Day 2018 by promoting the need for safe drinking water in the United States and around the world by launching another global social-media campaign.
The 2017 Clean Water Here social-media initiative that culminated on UN World Water Day helped people understand the nature and scope of the global water crisis. Coordinated by UN Water, World Water Day 2017 was led by UN Environment, UN-HABITAT, United Nations University and the World Health Organization.
As part of the initiative, dignitaries, celebrities and the public lent their own social media voices to create the largest U.S. clean drinking water social-media campaign in history.
“The lack of safe drinking water is one of the most important global challenges of the 21st century,” said Lani Dolifka, the creator of Clean Water Here. “Although the circumstances are very different in Flint Michigan and Sub-Saharan Africa, both share the same human story of woman and children suffering because of the lack of safe drinking water.” added Dolifka, who also serves as CEO of Watermill Express, the largest drive-up pure drinking water company in the United States. “Safe drinking water is fundamental to the stability of any community – no matter how big or small.”
A proud supporter of Clean Water Here, Watermill Express has been providing a sustainable alternative for clean, affordable drinking water in the United States for over 30 years.

World Water Day has been observed since 1993 when the United Nations General Assembly declared March 22 as the annual “World Day for Water.” Coordinated by UN Water in support of the 193 member nations of the UN, this day is devoted to implementing recommendations and promoting concrete activities within their countries regarding the world’s water resources. In addition to the UN member states, a number of NGOs promoting clean water leverage World Water Day as a time to focus public attention on the critical water issues facing the world.
