World Plumbing Day is an international event on 11 March initiated by the World Plumbing Council celebrating the important role plumbing plays in the health and safety of modern society. Many of us take safe drinking water and sanitation systems for granted until something goes wrong, then those that fix the situation are heroes in our eyes.
The WorldSkills Foundation works with WorldSkills Champions and Experts, Industry, and local educational Institutions to develop new sanitation systems in remote communities such as the Dhulikhel region of Nepal. This is one example that demonstrates how important having a skill in plumbing can be, and how working together in partnerships can make positive changes in many lives around the world.
