"Water is a Natural Entry Point into the Commons"

Canadian activist Anil Naidoo points out we've always managed water as a cooperative resource

Anil Naidoo, a Canadian activist and Fellow with OTC’S Our Water Commons, notes that “People have an affinity for water, an understanding of water, and for generations, for millennia, have been managing their water collectively.”

Our Water Commons seeks to transform society’s decisionmaking about water stewardship in the direction of participatory, democratic, community-centered systems that value equity and sustainability as a strategy.
