Our theme for 2022 –

About

World Bathing Day

On June 22, people around the planet are invited to celebrate humanity’s common connection to water through the practice of bathing. The simple act of immersing oneself in water has the power to break down barriers between people of different backgrounds and to bring communities closer together. At this time of change and disruption, bathing reminds us of the interconnections between the wellbeing of our communities and the wellbeing of our planet.

In 2019, 25 countries were represented in the second World Bathing Day celebration’.

In 2020, despite the impacts of COVID-19, people in 20 countries united in celebration

In 2021, despite the continuing impacts of COVID-19, people in 22 countries united in celebration.
