The Pope will make a live address from the Vatican tomorrow morning in which he will call for action on water. Afterwards 400 thought leaders from around the world will convene at WATERSHED to begin an unprecedented dialogue around the value and values of water.
The conference is co-hosted by the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Culture and the Club of Rome. Other partners include Circle of Blue, with input from the World Economic Forum Global Future Council on the Environment. To find out more, click here for the programme.
Last month, the Pope met participants in a conference on the human right to water, organised by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences. He told participants that questions concerning the right to water were not marginal, but basic and pressing. Basic, because where there is water there is life, and pressing, because our common home needs to be protected.
