World Water Day on March 22nd each year is the day the world focuses on water, led by the United Nations, and in the EHTTA network, this is a very special day too! World Water Day is the day on which members focus on the sources of water which make each of their towns so special, and which are the reasons the towns continue to exist and to draw visitors from all over the world to take the waters for leisure and health. This year’s theme “Nature for Water” explores how we can use nature to overcome the water challenges of the 21st century.

EHTTA, which also manages the Council of Europe’s Cultural Route of Historic Thermal Towns has developed “Celebration@Sources” to highlight the unique sources of water in each of its member towns, and to give those who manage the sources the opportunity to give access to the public in a way which is not generally available.
