Water brings all life together — human and non-human, individuals and communities, ecosystems and environments — creating a collective wealth, responsibility, and promise. In every environment on Earth, people have developed water practices sensitive to present and future needs, to inter-community equity, principles of reciprocity and the indubitable necessities of surrounding species and environment. Sustainable water cultures are still evident within innumerous living indigenous and local traditions. This session invites discussion and case studies of the practices and principles of water-sharing, as they can help us to understand the full significance of the local and global relationships between people and nature.
