On and around World Water Day – 22 March, almost 400,000 people from some 70 countries joined together to walk for water and sanitation and demanded commitments and actions from decision-makers in their respective countries. For those that organized events and walked to demand change – World Walks for Water and Sanitation would not be possible without you. Thank you for being part of this global movement!

In the lead up to the much-aniticpated high level meeting in Washington DC, USA – a short campaign video has been developed to show how the world walked for water and sanitation. The film is directed at Development and Finance Ministers and asks them to attend the Sanitation and Water for All (SWA) high level meeting on 20 April and bring with them solid commitments to pave the path of positive change. With only a few days to go, please use and share this video to help build further momentum for this event.

You can put it on your Facebook page, Tweet about it, show it to your Finance and/or Development Minister, or bring it to the attention of your local media whereever you are. 

The campaign video can be access on YouTube via the following link:
