We profile two women activists taking on the global water crisis. Canadian Maude Barlow is a well known leader in the global struggle for water justice. Ge Yun from China is in the vanguard of her country’s growing conservation movement. In this program, they both warn us about the link between climate change and the loss of one of our most basic human requirements: water for life.
Ge Yun, Xinjiang Conservation Fund executive director; Maude Barlow, The Council of Canadians national chairperson and Blue Planet Project co-founder.
