Water Justice in the Age of Coronavirus and Beyond
Water contaminated by toxic chemical wastes; hundreds of millions without access to minimum necessary quantities of potable water. These were grave, immense issues long before the coronavirus pandemic. Now the pandemic, raging globally, poses new questions for us: Do these pre-existing conditions, the polluted waters, the lack of access, make the pandemic worse? Conversely, will the pandemic affect society’s future ability or willingness to improve access and quality? These are the kinds of questions we will be exploring in this webinar with two Right Livelihood laureates, Maude Barlow and Robert Bilott.
With Maude Barlow (Canada), Robert Bilott (USA) & Andy Szasz (USA, moderator)
About the series, "Inspiring Change in Times of Crisis: Conversations That Matter With Right Livelihood Laureates". The Right Livelihood Foundation and Right Livelihood College at UC Santa Cruz are organizing a number of online conversations this spring and summer. Right Livelihood Award laureates are among those who have implemented large-scale solutions to the root causes of global problems. Now, and in the years immediately ahead, we have an unprecedented opportunity to amplify these ecological and social solutions, frameworks, policies, and social movements.
