Challenges and opportunities related to water conservation, sustainability, and access would be discussed by experts, stakeholders, and industry leaders at a thought leadership forum hosted by CWAY Group, one of the leading manufacturer and distributor of drinking water and other consumer goods.
Scheduled for the 22nd of March, 2023, the forum will feature Associate Professor Roland Efe Uwadiae, an environmentalist and Marine Scientist from the University of Lagos, as keynote speaker.
He will be speaking on the theme of this year’s WWD – ‘Accelerating Change.’
This is part of CWAY’s commitments to promoting and accelerating sustainable clean water preservation and to celebrate the United Nations World Water Day (WWD) 2023.
CWAY will hold a series of events and activities that promote the importance of clean and safe water for all.
According to the United Nations, “World Water Day celebrates and raises awareness of billions of people living without access to safe water. It is about taking action to tackle the global water crisis. A core focus of World Water Day is to support the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6: water and sanitation for all by 2030.”
Commenting on the event, Tony Ojumoola, the senior director, external affairs CWAY Nigeria Drinking Water Science & Technology Co. Ltd, says, “At CWAY, we recognise the importance of safe and clean drinking water, and we are committed to ensuring that everyone has access to it.
