|Add event to calendar||
UofL will participate in World Water Day with simultaneous events on both Belknap campus (SAC Marketplace) and the Health Sciences Center (Kornhauser Plaza). In partnership with the Louisville Water Company, we will host a Taste the Tap event in which we challenge you to a blind taste test to compare Louisville's award-winning tap water with commercially available bottled waters. We want you to #TasteTheDifference and #DrinkLocal. Gain a new appreciation for the privileges of living in a place like Louisville with great, dependable tap water, and pick up a reusable bottle so you never have to waste money and generate trash with bottled water again!
The United Nations' Sustainable Development Goal #6 is crystal clear: water for all by 2030. By definition, this means leaving no one behind. But today, billions of people are still living without safe water – their households, schools, workplaces, farms and factories struggling to survive and thrive. Marginalized groups – women, children, refugees, indigenous peoples, disabled people and many others – are often overlooked, and sometimes face discrimination, as they try to access and manage the safe water they need. This World Water Day, 22nd March, is about tackling the water crisis by addressing the reasons why so many people are being left behind.
