World Bathing Day, June 22

A celebration of water and the diverse rituals and cultural traditions associated with the act of bathing and cleansing.


World Bathing Day

Whether you run a business within the hot springs tourism industry or just love bathing, there’s many ways for you to get involved. 

The day will draw attention to our connection with the environment and the state of the world’s water in which we all bathe, as well as drawing awareness to the plight of people for whom bathing is not yet an option and rallying actions to create a world where bathing is possible for all.

Bathe The World Foundation

A bucket of water for everybody, everyday, that is the vision of the Bathe the World Foundation. Founded in 2018 by Professor Marc Cohen and Charles Davidson the foundation’s mission is to explore and promote the benefits of bathing and provide access to clean flowing water through research, education, advocacy, awareness campaigns, events and the provision of bathing facilities. One of the foundations key activities is supporting the annual World Bathing Day celebration, in particular using social media to raise awareness about the universal importance of water in our daily lives.



Working together to make a difference

World Bathing Day's development is being closely nurtured by the global hot springs industry, in particular the Global Wellness Institute's Hot Spring Initiative. Some of our key strategic partners are listed below.
