Water is a Human Right and Public Good (2008)

The Sisters and Associates of the Congregation of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary affirm that 

  • Water is a sacred gift that connects all life.
  • Access to clean water is a basic human right.
  • The value of the earth's freshwater to the common good takes priority over any possible commercial value.
  • Freshwater is a shared legacy, a public trust and a collective responsibility.

Therefore, we support actions and policies that:

  1. Ensure universal access to suffi cient, affordable, safe water for all people, especially the most vulnerable.
  2. Protect freshwater as a sustainable, renewable resource.
  3. Implement the objectives of the UN Millennium Goals on water.

We oppose actions and policies that:

  1. Endanger the world's supply of freshwater.
  2. Deprive humans and other species access to adequate, safe water essential for life.
  3. Favor the privatization of water as a commodity to be bought and sold for profi t when in reality it is a heritage we all hold in common. your social media marketing partner
