He spoke to the children in the audience and encouraged them to be good students and to maintain good friendships. The event was not only informative, but fun, as attendees experienced multiple performances including traditional dances, and student dance and singing acts. Hygienic plumbing processes are essential to human health and the environment. This is why World Plumbing Day is celebrated across the globe. Numerous countries partake in the event by holding seminars, competitions, and even celebrations. Those who work in the plumbing industry collaborate with people who work in other industries. Together, they share and spread knowledge to work towards improving the quality of sanitation processes. This leads to water that is safe to drink and is accessible to those who need clean water the most. Water plays an integral role in our daily lives – from having a glass of water, to showering and even flushing the toilet. Many infections and diseases can be easily prevented through proper plumbing and sanitation procedures.

World Plumbing Day helps bring focus on the communities still in need of basic plumbing amenities. Today, plumbing has advanced in many innovative ways that bring sustainable and energy-efficient methods to make the most of our planet’s water. World Plumbing Day is a day to celebrate our world’s progress in plumbing and the plumbers who help bring clean water to the world’s population.
