All citizens need clean drinking water and quality sanitation. Through this campaign we ask the European Union to guarantee these human rights through the promotion of water supply and sanitation as essential public services for all. These rights must be implemented. Our aim is to collect one million signatures from all over Europe to make this happen.
The European Union should set binding targets for all Member States to achieve 100% coverage of water and sanitation services in Europe. We believe that the European Union should also make a bigger effort towards achieving universal access to water and sanitation outside the European Union. Millions of people are still deprived of these services.
Guaranteed water and sanitation for all in Europe.
No liberalisation of water services.
Universal (Global) access to water and sanitation.
This campaign is a tool to commit the EU and Member States to implement the human right to water and sanitation. It is a tool to change the mind-set in the European Commission from a market-based approach with the focus on competition to a rights-based approach with the focus on public service. It aims to achieve universal (global) access to water and sanitation and to safeguard the limited public water resources for future generations.
