Water is a Human Right: Take Action!

The world’s freshwater is under attack. Privatization, pollution, damming, and drought will change the way we view our freshwater in the coming years.

According to Charity Water, one in six people on the planet do not have access to safe, clean drinking water.

In response to the growing struggle for safe, clean, free water a petition (Article 31) to the United Nations has been started to make sure that water becomes a fundamental human right for all people.

…We believe the world will be a better place when the Right To Water is acknowledged by all nations as a fundamental human right, and that this addition to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights represents a major step toward the goal of water for all.
