Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
The Blue Communities Project is dedicated to three primary things: 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 the public spaces. Renowned water justice activist Maude Barlow recounts her own education in water issues as she woke up to the immense pressures facing water in a warming world. Concluding with a step-by-step guide to making your own community blue, this is a heartening example of how ordinary people can effect enormous change.
