Portland Global Initiatives will be holding a Pub Crawl event for World Water Day on
March 24th, 2017 to help raise funds for water projects around the world. Our objective for the next 3 years is to produce a water purification and a waste-water collection facility at every coffee farm (168 farms total) within the entire region of Caldas, Colombia.
We are joining Base Camp Brewery, Coopers Hall, Cyrils at Clay Pigeon and Portland Roasting Coffee for a neighborhood pub crawl! Join us on Oak Street in the Industrial Eastside neighborhood from 5pm-8pm for great drinks, food, and great prizes. Walk the route around the neighborhood and stop by each station for a special treat! You can pre-register online and take advantage of reduced pricing as well as a free raffle ticket. You can purchase at the event as well. All proceeds go towards this great cause!

World Water Day grew out of the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environmental and Development in Rio de Janeiro. World Water Day in 2005 marked the beginning of the UN International Decade for Action on Water. This decade puts the spotlight on water-related programs, with hopes to increase the efforts for achieving international water-related goals and the United Nations Millennium Declaration. World Water Day is celebrated on March 22 each year and inspires events across the world which draw attention to the need for clean water for a healthy world.
