About

The World Walks for Water and Sanitation is a global mobilisation event demanding action across the world to address the water and sanitation crisis.

In March 2015, more than 450,000 people across the world took to the streets to walk to demand change from their governments: they demanded that their human right to water and sanitation is fulfilled; they walked in solidarity with the millions still forced to walk for water and defecate in the open. This video shows why they walked.

The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) expire in 2015. Although progress has been made to increase access to water, not enough has been done ensure it is reliable and safe. Efforts to hit the sanitation goal fell well short.

Continued action is needed to put pressure on decision-makers to ensure post-2015 targets truly deliver communities’ human rights, so next year, people will once again mobilise around the world for change in water and sanitation.
