About This Collection

One Water

The international observance of World Water Day is an initiative that grew out of the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in Rio de JaWorld Water Dayneiro. It inspired the creation of our EarthSayers special collection around the idea of "One Water." It addresses a wide range of issues including, but not limited to water supply, security, rights, and pollution.

The organization, One Water, puts the challenge succinctly: "Providing clean and safe water to everybody around the world is among the greatest challenges facing us today." Two other organizations asking for support are charity:water and water.org.

Keep Nestle Out of Columbia River Gorge: 4,000 Oregonians

On March 29, 2010, a coalition of environmental and social justice organizations, Keep Nestle Out of the Gorge, led by the consumer advocacy group Food & Water Watch, launched a coordinated campaign to prevent Nestle Waters North America from opening a water bottling facility in Cascade Locks Oregon.Keep Nestle Out of the Gorge opposes the deal because a bottled water facility would lead to the commodification of Oregons public water resources, and potentially jeopardize local wildlife, especially native salmon and steel head species. April 2012 update: Will you help Food and Water Watch cover the cost of a legal appeal to defend Oregon's water from Nestlé?
