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.

Announcing Meuse / Maas river walk 15 May – 15 July 2018

Source-to-Sea Walk: River Meuse / Maas

In my source-to-sea river walks, I invite you to join and show how every simple step in each of our daily lives matters. The river Maas will be the first to walk as I was born in this watershed. During the Maas walk I will:

  • meet as many local people and organisations as possible,
  • engage children to monitor water quality in a civil science research,
  • communicate online and with events; with press, partners, artists, ...
