World Wetland’s Day (WWD) is an annual global event celebrated annually on 02 February. The day marks the date of the adoption of the Convention on Wetlands on 02 February 1971 in the Iranian city of Ramsar on the shores of the mightly Caspian Sea.
The Standing Committee of the Convention has approved the theme of WWD in 2024 as “Wetlands and human wellbeing”.
The education team have produced very valuable accessible resources for universal access here: http://www.worldwetlandsday.org in multiple languages – these include posters, a campaign toolkit, powerpoint presentation, infographics and a video.. and more.
Wetlands need our help and to raise awareness about their importance for the proper functioning of the planet, as well as for our physical and human wellbeing across Ireland in and around February 2nd we will be signposting many events. These will be signposted here over coming weeks. If you wish to run an event in your local wetland sites please get in touch – we will try to support you.
