Only a few generations ago all rivers were drinkable, now almost none.
This is a sign of how we live. Canoeing an entire drinkable river, the Rupert River, in northern Québec Canada for a month taught me the value of relationships for the health of living systems.
Only three years later, this river was not drinkable anymore as human activities changed the balance of these healthy relationships.
Now, twelve years later, I start my project Drinkable RiversTM CC with source-to-sea river walks to engage local people, monitor water(shed) quality, and act towards an economy of care.
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, etc.
The Maas Walk
Check out the rough planning source-to-sea Maas river walk on the map.
An interactive map will soon be on the website where you will be able to see in real time where I am and for you to join the walk.
