Rights of Water Campaign – Toward a Declaration of Water rights

Rights of Water Campaign – Toward a Declaration of Water rights

Rights of Water Campaign
Turin, ITALY Status: Ongoing

The Rights of water Campaign was launched by Alberto Tiraferri, Associate Professor at Politecnico di Torino (Italy).
The main goal of the Campaign is to draft a Declaration of Water Rights to grant specific rights to water, and to consider it as a subject with ontological value, not as a mere object. Other than drafting the Declaration of Water rights, we hope to promote a new ecological and civil culture to discipline once again the relationship between water and human beings, thus deconstructing the idea that man is the owner of water, a belief that has long justified an abuse and improper use of the water element.
Thanks to the work of Professor Alberto Tiraferri and of the philosopher Leonardo Caffo, a Preamble of the Declaration was already drafted in nine different languages. Except for the Preamble, the Declaration will be formulated thanks to the crucial contribution of the community: using the dedicated section available on the website, it is possible to share any proposals on what rights should be granted to water!
