Water Day Summit 2015 / at the United Nations
In 1993, the United Nations General Assembly designated March 22 as the first World
Water Day. Twenty-two years later, World Water Day is celebrated around the world shining the spotlight on a different issue every year. In 2015, the theme for World Water Day is 'Water and Sustainable Development'. As an endorser of the United Nations Global Compact's CEO Water Mandate, we at MagneGas Corporation stand behind
our pledge to provide opportunities to make a positive impact in the emerging global water crisis and advance sustainable solutions. In keeping with this year’s theme, we will be conducting a panel on “Waste Water and Irrigation Challenges” as well as a panel on “Sustainable Innovations for Water Procurement,” each consisting of leaders in industry and state. With approximately 2.5 billion people living without basic sanitation facilities, and an estimated 748 million people lacking access to improved sources of drinking water in an ever-growing global population, sustainable innovations and practices must lead the way. As a country that has made enormous strides by taking a proactive approach to both sanitation and water access, we would like to make a formal request that you attend our Summit. We believe that your attendance and involvement at this event would contribute to the dialogue that will be had surrounding global efforts to manage clean water.
