This year for Drinking Water Week, Water Movement celebrates the Women behind Water. Let's commit to connecting with, listening to and learning from community Water Keepers. You can watch these Water Keepers directly on Water Movement's platform. Indigenous people, especially women, have always shared a sacred bond with the spirit of water through their role of child bearing. This translates to them and their communities having a responsibility to protect and nurture water. Similarly, today, water treatment operators share this responsibility with the water keepers. Water Movement recognizes, celebrates and honors Water Treatment Operators and Water Keepers.
