Join us in welcoming Maude Barlow and Marcela Olivera.
Maude Barlow is a Canadian author and activist. She is the chair of the Blue Planet Project and the Washington-based Food & Water Watch. She is a Councilor with the Hamburg-based World Future Council. In 2008/2009, she served as Senior Advisor on Water to the 63rd President of the United Nations General Assembly and was a leader in the campaign to have water recognized as a human right by the UN.
Marcela Olivera is a water commons organizer based in Cochabamba, Bolivia. Since 2004 she has been developing and consolidating an inter-American citizens’ network on water justice named Red VIDA. She sits on the coordinating committee of the Platform for Public and Community Partnerships of The America (PAPC). Since 2019, she has been working as the regional coordinator for the Blue Planet Project.
This Conversation is also an opportunity to invite financial resources to support the work of each guest and Walking Water. We choose to ask for donations rather than a set price because we wish to evoke the community spirit of gifting. We trust that those who are curious, interested and know they are to be part of these events will truly offer what they can. For those who need a hint or guideline then we suggest a minimum of $10. No-one will be turned away for lack of funds.
All donations are received by Weaving Earth, our fiscal sponsors, and then re-directed to Walking Water.
