Why are water issues not being taken seriously

We have a crisis – right now.  In South Africa, we are running out of potable water.  Yet mining licences are being granted with impunity.  Municipalities are not being given sufficient means to maintain water infrastructure.  People are not being trained either.

This is a call to action for every community – we have to demand training, investment and infrastructure development, plus the stopping of new mining licences, right now!

We need new solutions for everyone in our country that change how we move into our new world of lack of food and water.  Urban gardening is one route but training people in water skills is a powerful option
