The Standing Committee of the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands approved “Wetlands for a Sustainable Urban Future”¬†as the theme for World Wetlands Day in 2018.

World Wetlands Day is celebrated every year on 2 February. This day marks the date of the adoption of the Convention on Wetlands on 2 February 1971, in the Iranian city of Ramsar on the shores of the Caspian Sea.

Since 1997, the Ramsar Secretariat has provided outreach materials to help raise public awareness about the importance and value of wetlands.
