The world is facing twin water crises, one ecological, the other human. Modern industrial society sees water as a resource for development and is mercilessly polluting and depleting existing water supplies.
Maude Barlow has traveled from the UN and high level conferences to the worst slums on earth in search of solutions to these crises. She argues that water is not a commodity to be but on the open market like oil and gas, but rather a public trust and human right to be guarded and preserved for all time.
Join her as she gives practical tools and examples of water sustainability projects worldwide that protect ecosystems and local communities and economics.
