The Blue Planet Project’s mission is to encourage people to take action for water justice in their communities, their country and globally. We believe that education is empowerment, and crucial to building a global understanding that water is essential for life. To help in these efforts, we produce a wide variety of material that is available free for downloading and distribution from this website. If you would like more information about any of our materials, please contact us at 1-800-387-7177 or by e-mail at blueplanet@canadians.org.

 

Fresh water is quickly becoming big business, and a preserve of the wealthy. The world’s most fundamental and indispensable resource — water — is fast disappearing. A global shortage of water is looming as the most threatening ecological, economic, and political crisis of the21st century.

 

“Imagine a world in twenty years, in which no substantive progress has been made to provide basic wastewater service in the Third World, or to force industry and industrial agriculture production to stop polluting water systems, or to curb the mass movement of water by pipeline, tanker and other diversion, which will have created huge new swaths of desert.”
