Blue Covenant: The Coming Fight for the Right to Water
Maude Barlow, National Chairperson, The Council of Canadians

The world is running out of fresh water. Humans are polluting, displacing and mismanaging our freshwater stocks so severely that entire areas of the Earth are drying up. As a result, close to two billion people now live in water-stressed areas of the Earth, and close to two million children die every year of water-related disease. The nature of this ecological and human rights disaster will be discussed, as will the blueprint for a water-secure world. Learn stories of conflict and triumph as “water warriors” around the world demand the right to affordable, accessible, clean water for life.
