March 11 is World Plumbing Day – Here’s how you can get involved!

March 11 is World Plumbing Day.

It is a date that has been fixed on the calendars of the World Plumbing community since its establishment by the World Plumbing Council in 2010 and is now a fixture on the calendars of political and social institutions around the globe.

The international plumbing community, as represented by the Council, has a vital role in promoting the link between good quality plumbing, health, environmental sustainability and, increasingly, economic prosperity.

March 11 is marked by celebrations, competitions, seminars, and activities all around the world.  People from within and outside the plumbing fraternity come together to learn, share knowledge, build connections and find opportunities to collaborate to improve the quality of, and access to, fresh water and safe sanitation.

There are now hundreds of annual World Plumbing Day events, promoting the link between good plumbing sanitation and human and environmental health.
