Water is crucial to survival in terms of diet, health, hygiene and beyond. Yet while resources are gradually dwindling, solutions to ensure water sustainability are not being implemented as fervently as an environmentally aware member of society would like ideally.
I envision a future where water is not taken for granted then depleted, leading to a drought/panic where societies do not know how to respond appropriately; measures should be taken proactively and in the present to help mitigate repercussions of large scale water crises.
An example of an intervention could be pushing for ‘rationing’ water with the Bill C-219 Canadian Environmental Bill of Rights in mind. The goal would be to incentivize cherishing, and reducing waste of our communally owned and limited resource. The bill could utilize rebates as discussed in class (that we would have to first better educate ourselves with), or offering limited amounts of free volumes of water before price-tags are attached. #unleashvalues 🙂
