The Blue Planet Project "is an international civil society movement begun by The Council of Canadians to protect the world’s fresh water from the growing threats of trade and privatization.

"We work with organizations and activists in both South and North, and are affiliated with international networks including Friends of the Earth International, Red Vida (the Americas Network on the Right to Water) and the People's Health Movement.

"We are currently working with partners world-wide on using a human rights framework to protect water for people and nature for generations to come. This includes working with local organizations and activists on grassroots struggles to protect democratic, community control of water, and building a movement to secure an international treaty on the Right to Water.

"Maude Barlow, founder of the Blue Planet Project, has recently been appointed Senior Advisor on Water to the President of the 63rd session of the United Nations General Assembly." [1]
