The facts are undisputable – our world’s freshwater sources are in danger.
Now, more than ever, we need to make a commitment to protect water from pollution, abuse and corporate greed – and that’s where the Blue Communities Project comes in.
We invite you to join Maude Barlow in Courtenay on October 22 for a discussion on Blue Communities, water protection, and her new book, Whose Water is it Anyway? Taking water protection into public hands.
The Blue Communities Project is dedicated to three primary principles: that access to clean, drinkable water is a basic human right, that municipal and community water will be held in public hands, and that single-use plastic water bottles will not be available in public spaces. With its simple, straightforward approach, the Blue Communities movement, led by the Council of Canadians, CUPE and Eau Secours, has been growing around the world for a decade. Today, Paris, Berlin, Bern, and Montreal are just a few of the cities that have made themselves Blue Communities.
In this book Barlow examines the growing threats to our water sources and tells the story of how grassroots water warriors woke up to the immense pressures facing water in a warming world. The way forward includes a step-by-step guide to making your own community “blue.”
