Water is a public good, not a commodity. Water is a Human Right campaign invites the European Commission to propose legislation implementing the human right to water and sanitation as recognised by the United Nations, and promoting the provision of water and sanitation as essential public services for all. The EU legislation should require governments to provide all citizens with sufficient and clean drinking water and sanitation.

This European Citizens Initiative urges that:

  • The EU institutions and member states be obliged to ensure that all inhabitants enjoy the right to water and sanitation.
  • Water supply and management of water resources should not be subject to internal market rules and that water services are excluded from liberalisation.
  • The EU increases its efforts to achieve universal access to water and sanitation.

Co-organised by the organisations Prima Persona, Food and Water Europe, IERPE and EPSU, the event will be hosted by Gianni Pittela MEP (S&D,IT).
