Who Owns Our Water? The Global Grassroots Struggle to Take Back the Tap
26 Feb 2008
The "water wars" are on the horizon. Just like oil today. We suffer a moral predicament as big corporations reap windfall profits from privatizing water while billions go thirsty. But who owns our water in the first place? How can we protect this common resource for all, now and forever? There is no one better to address this issue and provide us with hopeful direction than world renowned global expert on water rights, Maude Barlow. Maude discussed how protecting our water sources from corporate interests is as crucial as curbing greenhouse gas emissions. Furthermore, she laid out the actions that we as global citizens must take to secure a water-just world - a "blue covenant" for all.
