Right to Water: Blue Planet Project

The Blue Planet Project is a global initiative by the Council of Canadians, working with partners around the world, to achieve water justice based on the principle that water is a human right, a public trust, and part of the global commons. The Blue Planet Project works with organizations and activists in both the South and the North, and is affiliated with international networks including Friends of the Earth International, Red Vida (the Americas Network on the Right to Water), and the People’s Health Movement.

Visit the Blue Planet Project website for more information.
