Public awareness of the impending world water crisis is an important prerequisite to create a responsible citizenship capable of participating to improve world water

in the United States, currently World Water Monitoring Day is celebrated in 50 countries by more than 75,000 particpants per year. Review of this exercise in terms
of public environmental education and possible transferrability to to other global issues of importance is discussed.
