All for Water aims to provoke critical thinking around the global availability and health of freshwater, including the social, economic and political change required to protect this resource for generations to come. According to UN-Water, an inter-agency of the United Nations, it is estimated that by 2050 there will be insufficient freshwater for all the earth’s inhabitants. Currently, Canada’s lakes, rivers, streams and wetlands hold twenty percent of the worlds freshwater. As residents of this country there is a great responsibility to take care of its water and to be prepared, potentially, to share it with those beyond our borders.
