*******************************************************************
The English expression "To be in HOT WATER" means to be in trouble.
Currently, climate change, environmental decline, rights violations,
volatile politics and conflict all suggest "HOT WATER".

Water is a fundamental element for all beings on Earth. A symbol of life
and a "common good" which should be available to all, water is quickly
becoming a commodity to some, and often taken as hostage in conflicts to
besiege and displace populations. Corporations, governments, and industries
such as mining and tourism use it for their own short-term benefits,
depriving people - especially Indigenous people and farmers - of their
rights, causing pollution, threatening health and the environment, and
compromising long-term water management.

How can art, science, design, and activism reinstate the social, cultural
and environmental value of water?

How can we share the responsibility of water in a positive way?

How can we all preserve the right of access to water?

How can intergenerational knowledge-sharing get us out of "HOT WATER", end
conflict and find peace?
