In a world with drinkable rivers, all relations in entire watersheds are healthy.
Canoeing an entire drinkable river, the Rupert River, in northern Québec Canada for a month thirteen years ago, taught me that Drinkable Rivers can be a reality. It showed me the value of relationships for the health of living systems.
Witnessing how only three years later this river was not drinkable as a result of our choices of ‘economic developments’ underlined the vulnerability of the health of living systems and the need for us to care.
