Maude Barlow – The Global Water Crisis

2009, Environment
Presented By: Maude Barlow

Maude Barlow paints a bleak picture of the world’s exponential water use, abuse, waste, displacement, and pollution. We’re running out of clean water and that’s causing terrible conflict and suffering of all kinds. She details three large practical principles upon which to build a water-secure future: water restoration, conservation and protection; water as commons and public trust; water as a fundamental human right.  She invites us to take action.
