Paris, March 13th, 2015 - The World Water Day, organized each year on March 22nd by the United Nations, is the occasion for Nestlé Waters and Project WET (Water Education for Teachers) to raise awareness about the importance of water conservation and hydration.
Nestlé Waters and the non-governmental organization, Project WET have renewed their global partnership to continue expanding water education amongst educators and children around the world for another four years.
