Water Watchers empowers people & communities to work in solidarity towards social justice through the unifying lens of water.
The Water Watchers began as a grassroots organization founded in 2007 to oppose Nestlé Water Canada’s local water-bottling operations in Wellington County, Ontario. Today, the Water Watchers has become a unique resource to grassroots leaders on the frontlines of water protection.
Over the past five years, our unique, campaign-based approach to mobilizing public support to protect water has helped communities win major victories. These campaigns bring more and more people into the movement to protect water by ‘connecting the dots’ between local and systemic issues moving communities closer toward water justice.
