A “Blue Community” is a growing network of communities located around the globe that have adopted a water commons framework by taking three specific actions.
- Recognizing water as a human right.
- Banning the sale of bottled water in public facilities and at municipal events.
- Promoting publicly financed, owned and operated water and waste water services.
This movement, initiated in Canada could help solving the problem of the access to water in Brussels. In Europe, Paris, Berlin, Barcelona and Bern have already adopted the status of a blue community. So why not Brussels? To give you a better insight into this initiative, we invite you to their website: The blue communities project.
