Water is extremely important for our lives. From drinking to cooking to bathing, water is a natural resource that is irreplaceable in our daily lives. Most of the water that we use for day-to-day activities comes from groundwater. Natural resources play a very important role in ensuring that we have a stable and healthy lifestyle. The importance of freshwater is optimal for good health. Freshwater ensures that we stay healthy, fit and fine. With the rising population, the usage of groundwater is increasing while the availability of water is going down. We need to buckle up and work together in preserving groundwater to ensure that we do not run out of one of the most important natural resources.

is an annual United Nations observance day held on 22 March that highlights the importance of fresh water. The day is used to advocate for the sustainable management of freshwater resources.
In 1993, the United Nations General Assembly decided that a day should be dedicated to creating awareness about the conservation and significance of fresh water in our lives. Since 1993, March 22 has been observed as World Water Day.

"The International Day of Forests was established on the 21st day of March, by resolution of the United Nations General Assembly on November 28, 2013. Each year, various events celebrate and raise awareness of the importance of all types of forests, and trees outside forests, for the benefit of current and future generations. Countries are encouraged to undertake efforts to organize local, national, and international activities involving forests and trees, such as tree planting campaigns, on International Day of Forests. The Secretariat of the United Nations Forum on Forests, in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization, facilitates the implementation of such events in collaboration with governments, the Collaborative Partnership on Forests, and international, regional and subregional organizations. International Day of Forests was observed for the first time on March 21, 2013." Wikipedia

The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) founded this day in 1999. Poetry uses rhythms and imagery to elicit emotion and the imagination of the reader. Poetry can rhyme, using what are called meters of long and short syllables. Some poetry, written in what’s called ‘free verse,’ doesn’t employ rhyme or meters. Poems are broken into stanzas, which are like paragraphs, and can be up to 12 lines long. We believe the first known poem appeared 4,000 years ago in Babylon. Today, countless types of poems are available to enjoy, including haikus, limericks, sonnets, and ballads.

"UN French Language Day (French: Journée de la langue française) is observed annually on 20 March. The event was established by UN's Department of Public Information in 2010 "to celebrate multilingualism and cultural diversity as well as to promote equal use of all six official languages throughout the Organization".
For the French language, 20 March was chosen as the date since it "coincides with the 40th anniversary of the International Organization of La Francophonie", a group whose members share a common tongue, as well as the humanist values promoted by the French language." Wikipedia
