Last night, Council of Canadians chairperson Maude Barlow spoke to a packed house in Washington, DC at Busboys and Poets (at 14th and V Streets NW). She was there to share from her book Blue Future: Protecting Water for People and the Planet Forever.
IPS Tweeted a photo with the caption, “Maude Barlow @BusboysandPoets conveying dire state of world’s water supply.” John Cavanagh, the Director of the Institute for Policy Studies, has said, “The world’s leading water water warrior has issued a call to arms and a road map to transform our economies and priorities to protect our most precious resource – water. The book is an explosive rethinking of our future that could save the planet.”
The event was co-sponsored by IPS-DC, Busboys and Poets, Teaching for Change, The New Press, Food and Water Watch, Center for Food Safety, and Public Citizen.
