World Rivers Day is a global celebration of the world's waterways, observed every last Sunday in September. Established in 2005, it highlights the many values of rivers and strives to increase public awareness while encouraging the improved stewardship of rivers around the world. World Rivers Day occurs annually on the last Sunday in September.

World Rivers Day was started in 2005 by river conservationist, Mark Angelo.[1][2] It was created as a result of the success of the BC Rivers Day in British Columbia, Canada, founded by Angelo in 1980.[3][4]
