Indigenous Message on Water

Grandmothers_Projects_Water

The Indigenous World Forum on Water and Peace is a coalition of Indigenous leaders, Indigenous organizations, academics and like-minded people globally who wish to protect water for future generations. It is a vision from the Elders, and has the support of 60 organizations globally (at the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues).

This is a partnership between Indigenous peoples organizations (The International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers), universities (UNBC, UVic), and non-government organizations (The Pacific Peoples’ Partnership and the Indigenous Environmental Network)

What we envision:
This project will have two components:

  • A global forum that will gather together traditional Indigenous knowledge keepers, community members working to protect water and people from all nations, proposed for September, 2014 (location to be determined). The Global Forum responds to the need to develop sustainable water practices and to address conflicts over water, and will meet the Millennium Development Goals to address poverty, disease and child mortality./li>
  • 2014 + Post forum community capacity-building. The forum will be a catalyst for a new paradigm, the drop of water that ripples out to local communities to work together for healthy and clean water. Communities’ capacity will be built to find their own solutions to the challenges faced by water./li>
