What is a blue community?
Blue Communities believe water belongs to everyone and thus everyone has responsibility to care for it through: “reasonable use, equal distribution and responsible treatment in order to preserve water for nature and future generations.”
What is the water commons framework?
It starts with a commitment to three actions.
1. Recognizing water as a human right.
2. Promoting publicly financed, owned and operated water and waste water services.
3. Banning the sale of bottled water in public facilities and at municipal events.
How can you participate in bluing our community?
When we started Water for Riley we hadn’t heard of the blue community initiative. The more we learn, the more we find we’re part of a growing awareness about water and movement to create beautiful public drinking fountains.
