Friday 14th March 2014, marks the International Day of Action for Rivers. 

Every year around 14th March, thousands of people around the world lift their voices in celebration of the world’s rivers and those who struggle to protect them. NGO International Rivers has provided global coordination for this event since it was created during the first International Meeting of Dam-Affected People and their Allies in 1997. The Day of Action for Rivers provides proactive, positive, inspiring proof that our issues are not merely isolated and local, but global in scope.

You can join the action in Malaysia where a Public Forum and movie screening of the importance of rivers will be held on:
