World Water Day Infographic

I’m not a big fan of today’s infographic trend. 1 meter high visuals with meaningless graphics comes as a virus. With data which can be told in a few sentences.
Therefore I was pleasantly surprised by this infographic from Able Skills, a Construction Training firm. It’s made for Wolrd Water Day which is tomorrow Friday 22nd March.

You can see the static infographic after the break. Click on it and you will see why it is so great.
It is an infographic made for the internet. It’s interactive. You, the viewer, decide what to do and see.
Great work!

That means more people die from a lack of clean water and sanitation than from all forms of violence - including war.”
