Blue Communities

Primary tabs

We invite you to become a part of the local and global movement for water security and justice by joining the Blue Communities Project – a joint initiative that furthers the work of local Water Watch coalitions across the country.

Learn what you can do as a community activist,  public sector worker or  municipal councillor  to help protect the water commons – our shared water resources – in the face of increasing pressure to put water up for sale and privatize water services.

The Blue Communities Project calls on communities to adopt a water commons framework by:

  1. Recognizing water and sanitation as human rights.
  2. Banning or phasing out the sale of bottled water in municipal facilities and at municipal events.
  3. Promoting publicly financed, owned and operated water and waste water services.
