Who gets to make decisions about water?

FLOW (For Love Of Water) is a new film that has already won several awards. View the trailer for the film at http://www.flowthefilm.com/trailer/

Water is the sleeping giant issue of the 21st Century and we all need to wake up about it.  FLOW opens our eyes about the greatest threat  of our time – the global water crisis.  It is a compelling and passionate film. Its engaging narrative will grip the viewer.
Robert Redford

FLOW exposes the efforts of a few rapacious corporations to exploit the world’s water for their own profit. It illuminates the responsibility we who consume that water at $9 a gallon bare for the devastation that ensues. It is a clarion call to action to all those who care about the future we leave our children, to oppose and end this usurpation of our planet’s life blood. It is brilliant and not to be missed.”
James Cromwell

Take a look at their “About Water” page which lists some important information and statistics about the global water situation: http://www.flowthefilm.com/aboutwater.

We have added several lesson plans and curriculum guides to the Education page of this blog. Take a look and see what you think. If you try any of these with your students please let us know (tamuwaterproject@gmail.com). Our very own Angela Cornelius collected and edited many of these documents (thanks Angela). These documents are in PDF format.

We are also interested in posting any lesson or curriculum plans you would like to share with us that relate to water, pottery, appropriate technologies, environmental issues, or social justice.
