Right2water CAMPAIGN | From the European Citizens Initiative to the Gloval Water Justice Campaign

The European Citizen Initiative Water is a Human Right was initiated and is coordinated by the European Public Services Union (EPSU), with 9 NGOs including EAPN. The campaign was also supported by many other organisations. This ECI gathered  1,884,790 signatures, succeeding to go over 1 million signatures to be received by the European Commission. The campaign is still running though, as the European COmmission has taken action despite the official receivability of the ECI. The ECI campaign is now over, but the campaign Water is a Human Right is also happening at global level, through various initiatives including Global Water Justice Campaign – Facebook: https://facebook.com/HRtoH2O and Twitter: @HRtoH2O.
