THE TIME IS NOW

Portugal is among the European Countries most at risk of water scarcity and environmental degradation.
 
Coastal erosion; deep sea mining; over fishing; soil acidification; desertification; intensive mono-culture farming; deforestation; lithium mining; and widespread wildfires are just some of the national threats which threaten the safety of our society an environment and require an urgent political response.

A WALK TO REDEFINE STORIES OF ACTIVISM AND HUMAN RELATIONSHIP WITH THE EARTH AND WATER

The One Water walk is a 700km walk from the South to the North of Portugal formed in response to the challenge of water scarcity and ecological breakdown. 
 
We walk in collaboration with the many water guardians around the world who dedicate their lives to the protection of the earth. This is a journey based on connection; to understand and capture the challenges and real life solutions that communities are managing in Portugal today.
 
We will walk to visit the frontiers in the fight for water, connect communities and gather the stories of Portugal.

One Water Walk 2021 is continually adapting to emerging Covid-19 restrictions and regulations, in our commitment to protect all those involved with this action. We thank all of our collaborators and partners for their continued support and work as our journey continues.
 
We use this global shift to look inwards to remember our shared needs and priorities.
We work in collaboration with Codes for a Healthy Earth
For the 2021 World Water Year we work to protect water systems and work to create a World WATER LAW. 
 
We, citizens of Earth, call for and commit to working together to ensure that a binding international law is put in place for the immediate and universal protection of all Water, as the first vital step towards global cooperation for effective, worldwide social and ecological healing.
