Still Hopeful: A Livestream Conversation with World-Renowned Water Activist Maude Barlow

June 15

A free, one-hour livestream conversation with world-renowned water activist Maude Barlow. FLOW Executive Director Liz Kirkwood will lead the discussion with Ms. Barlow, following a video tribute by FLOW founder Jim Olson. Audience questions will be encouraged.

A lifelong and world-renowned champion of water, Maude Barlow has authored a book built on her career of activism. Its title, appropriately, is Still Hopeful: Lessons from a Lifetime of Activism. In the book, Barlow tells stories of her work on many issues, perhaps most importantly her successful advocacy of water as a human right–resulting in a declaration of the human right to water by the United Nations General Assembly. “Hope often defies logic and gives us the strength to continue when all the ‘facts’ tell us things are hopeless,” Barlow writes. “Hope helps us to put one foot in front of the other when despair would tell us not to move.”
