Rights of Water Campaign
A group of water scientists and philosophers from Turin, Italy, have launched this campaign to draw up a declaration of water rights. This declaration acknowledges that there cannot be rights to water if the rights of water are not concurrently recognized. The campaign collects contributions from anybody who wishes to propose and bring forward one or more prospective rights of water. The campaign is launched on the World Water Day, March 22, 2019, and will accept contributions through December 31, 2019. At the end of this period, a panel will review the contributions, edit them, and thus redact the declaration, which will be made public on the 2020 World Water Day, March 22, a year after the launch of the campaign. We encourage contribution from anybody, in their language of choice, and we encourage everybody to promote this campaign among friends, family, and peers. We pledge to do our best to support and maintain the essence and intent of all valuable contributions.
